Coconuts & Sour Sausage Balls... It's a Thai Street BBQ! This Saturday, Sept. 30 at 11AM on KCRW's Good Food. Night+Market. West Hollywood, CA.

Chef Kris Yenbamroong.

Night+Market on Sunset Blvd., an annex of Talesai Thai along the hair band (yes, they're still there) stretch of the Sunset Strip, uses coconut shells as fuel for its Thai BBQ. (And, I thought using them as bikini tops was wacky!)

Recently, Night+Market chef/owner Kris Yenbamroong broke down the ins and outs of Thai street grilling at his restaurant's back patio where he recreated an authentic Northeastern Thai or Isaan style BBQ utilizing imported Thai street grills with coconut shells as fuel which provide an intensely hot flame.

Fuzzy fuel.

This Saturday on KCRW's Good Food with Evan Kleiman, you can hear me in conversation with Chef Yenbamroong as we talk about the uniqueness of Northern Thai street grilling.

Um, your coconuts are on fire.

Tune in on Saturday, September 30th at 11AM to 89.9FM KCRW or anytime after the broadcast at

Dang good "Moo Daeng" or BBQ Pork Ribs.

If you've never experienced Thai food beyond pad thai, you need to check out the amazing things being cooked up at Night+Market. It's definitely a special restaurant.

Thai Sausage Fest.

The Isaan Sour Sausages, Pork Toro and Nuoc Mam Chicken Wings still call to me whenever I'm anywhere near the Sunset Strip.
