A trip to Asiatown always means being able to enjoy a variety of cuisines that hail from the neighborhood’s namesake continent. Now, a new concept will offer the ability to enjoy a variety of curries from across Asia, all crafted by one of the city’s favorite chefs.

CultureMap reports that Chef Mike Tran, owner of popular ramen shop Tiger Den and Chinese spot Mein, will open a third concept called Night Market in partnership with former Ambrosia chef Rikesh Patel. Night Market will open in the space adjacent to Main, and soon, the curries will begin simmering.

The concept will offer curry dishes that take influence from India and Thailand, among other countries where the dish is popular. No full menu has been announced just yet, but you’ll also find “grilled items, fried snacks, and salad.” Perhaps most excitingly, Night Market plans to keep the doors open late — midnight during the week, 2 a.m. on the weekends — if there’s enough demand to satisfy a late-night curry craving.

Night Market is set to debut at some point next month, though no concrete opening date has been set just yet. Stay tuned for more updates.
