Night + Market (3)

Went back to Night+Market again with Ben and Danno a few weeks ago. Won’t say much since there are two posts already, but we tried a couple of new dishes, along with some favorites since it was Danno’s first time there (PIG TAIL FTW). I have to say, Chef Kris has really stepped it up during these last two dinners, and I find myself wanting to return more and more often. He even came out and chatted with us for a minute. Congrats on making the short list of James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year, and thanks again for the wonderful food! And thanks for the pad thai (it was unexpected).

And by the way, I’m bumping the grade up.
