Time and time again we have found ourselves in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. It’s usually the food that draws us here. So on our very last date day of the year, the Hubs and I decided to grab lunch at Night + Market Song, a hip Thai food joint in the neighborhood. We then took a tour of some colorfully painted stairs that can be found tucked away in various parts of the city.
The hubs is not one for visiting trendy walls or stairs for that matter, but he knew I had been dying to see some for awhile now. He came through big time, even did some quick research to see exactly where they were located. It seems the artwork on the stairs and landing wall are ever-changing, so there might be a chance that it will be different the next time you visit. I love the bright happy colors and it was the perfect backdrop for an impromptu photo shoot. Again thanks to the Hubs for being my resident photographer on these awesome date days.
The food was amazing at Night + Market Song. We dined on tasty grilled toro (bits of pig neck), I love the strong pungent flavors of the papaya salad. It’s not the same as home, but it hits the spot. The hubs favorite was the crispy rice salad listed on the menu as Nam Khao Tod, he dreams of that dish all the time. Also, we shared their chicken sandwich because you just kind of have to. It’s world famous, it says so in permanent painted letters on the front exterior wall of the restaurant. The chicken was pretty juicy and loaded with the papaya salad, so you don’t get a regular fried chicken sandwich, but one with big Thai flavors. We pretty much ordered enough food to feed a party of four. Luckily we worked off all those calories by climbing stairs afterwards.
