There are many good bowls of the Thai staple tom kha gai to be found in this city, but we keep coming back to Malai's version, which is studded with juicy chunks of chicken breast and tangy-sweet cherry tomatoes. [Photo: Claire McCormack]

9. Monkey King Noodle Co.

3014 Main St
Dallas, TX 75226
Monkey King may still be in its soft opening phase, but it's already drawing long lines at lunchtime for its incredible spicy beef noodle soup. The bouncy handmade noodles steal the show, but the spicy, meaty broth is nothing to sneeze at either.

10. Mot Hai Ba

Copy Link
6047 Lewis St
Dallas, TX 75206
The pho here is solid, but its outshone by the incredible rice noodle soup adorned with perfectly charred pork belly and a plump pork meatball. (Fair warning: This dish is only available at lunch.)

11. Tanoshii

2724 Commerce St
Dallas, TX 75226
The spicy miso ramen is the way to go at the city's very first dedicated ramen shop. It comes with pork belly, corn and bean sprouts, but we recommend adding a soft-boiled egg to make it a little more hearty.

12. Tei-An

Dallas, TX 75201
(214) 220-2828

Everyone gushes about the ramen at Teiichi Sakurai's ever-impressive One Arts Plaza spot, but if you can bear to branch out, order the hot duck soba. (Yes, it's as good as it sounds.)

3118 W Northwest Hwy
Dallas, TX 75220
(214) 357-9296
The homestyle chicken soup here is served steaming hot and chock-full of bone-in chicken pieces, carrots, potatoes and cabbage, plus rice and lime wedges on the side, and comes flanked with incredible housemade tortillas (corn or flour).
