Chinatown restaurateur Mike Tran has followed up Tiger Den and Mein with this curry house, a collaboration with chef Rikesh Patel. Anyone who’s been to either of Tran’s other restaurants will recognize Night Market’s look, which includes a graphic on one wall and simple wooden booths. Dishes like pork belly curry with plantains and green curry with butter prawns demonstrate both the depth of flavor that comes from cooking dishes “low and slow” as well as a spice level that will have diners reaching for relief from one of the available draft beers. The grill side of the menu includes dishes like chicken boti, which is marinated in yogurt and spices. Don’t skip the housemade naan, which is perfect for sopping up every last drop of sauce.
