If Pok Pok sounds familiar to you, then please welcome Andy Ricker’s newest restaurant: Sen Yai. It means Big (or wide) Rice Noodle. It is a noodle house serving up Thai street food dishes, not typically found in Thai restaurants in America. Let’s give it a try.
We’ll eat family style so we could try several dishes together. The dishes spiciness would be adjusted so all diners could enjoy them. A few dishes which are recommended:
• Kuaytiaw Reua or Boat Noodles. Originally sold by food vendors along the canals of Thailand. It has a savory and spice broth loaded with stewed beef, poached beef, house- made meatballs, fragrant and smoky dry chilies, and rice noodles
• Kuaytiaw Neua Sap: old-school Thai comfort food—charred fresh rice noodles topped with a 'gravy' of ground beef, tomatoes, onions, garlic, oyster sauce, and soy and fish sauces.
• Kuaytiaw Khua Pet. A Bangkok Chinatown specialty. Stir-fried wide rice noodles.
• Ba Mii Tom Yam Muu Haeng. Dry wheat noodles with ground pork, pork balls, cracklings, peanuts, bean sprouts, long beans, preserved radish, fried garlic, chili vinegar, fish sauce, and chili powder, with broth on the side.
• Luuk Chin Thawt. It has deep-fried Thai style pork balls, beef balls, or fish balls served with Pok Pok spicy sweet and sour dipping sauce.
