Khao Noodle Shop, DFW’s newest destination for Laotian cuisine, will soon make its East Dallas debut.

The restaurant is set to quietly open its doors next week for limited hours as the team gets used to the kitchen in the space at 4812 Bryan Street #101, according to a press release. As Eater reported back in August, the restaurant is a project of chef Donny Sirisavath, who’s been testing out his noodle recipes at pop-ups across the city in anticipation of Khao Noodle Shop’s opening.

Diners can look forward to a menu of budget-friendly dishes (read: less than $10 each) that are largely noodle-based, including Laotian khao soi, the shop’s take on a classic curry dish that Sirisavath claims is the only version of the dish in Dallas. Also on offer is khao soi, a soup made with chicken and pork broth, ground pork, and crispy rice. Diners can wash down all those noodles with Laotian beer, and a full bar is set to follow in the coming months.

Khao Noodle Shop will debut on Tuesday, November 20, with plans to host an official grand opening party on Wednesday, December 12. Check out the restaurant on Facebook for details on its opening hours.
