Khao Noodle Shop, a new eatery serving up Laotian noodles and soups, will soon debut in East Dallas.
The noodle shop will open next month at 4812 Bryan Street #101, right next door to Mai’s Vietnamese Restaurant, a longstanding neighborhood fixture. It’s the project of Chef Donny Sirisavath, who’s been slinging his noodle bowls around town at pop-ups like the enormous Asian Night Market at the Bomb Factory this summer, the weekly Buddhist Temple of Dallas food event, and other pop-ups organized by Sandwich Hag, a Cedars outpost for Vietnamese banh mi.
Based on photos posted to the restaurant’s Facebook page, the eatery will serve octopus tacos stuffed with veggies like tomatoes, radish, corn, and garnished with cilantro, plus boat noodle soup which traditionally contains both pork and beef, dark soy sauce, pickled bean curd, noodles, and pork blood and liver. Another dish teased on Khao’s Facebook page is a Laotian twist on musubi, the Hawaiian specialty of Spam-topped-rice held together with a band of seaweed. As far as drinks are concerned, Laotian beer will be on offer with a full bar to roll out later.
Stay tuned for Khao Noodle Soup’s official opening date, expected to arrive sometime in September.
