In a former life, Black & Silver was a Raiders-centric sports bar, but now it serves fresh, homey Lao food, says daveena. “It’s the only place that I've been to besides Champa Garden that does the fried rice ball salad. Black & Silver's version is a little less crunchy and has more sausage." That salad, the larb, and Lao sausage are all very good, making this a nice alternative to the often-crowded Champa Garden for those who don’t mind seedy details like the “veritable parade of commercial sex workers outside" the night that daveena was there.
