Have lunch plans yet? Andy Ricker makes it official at his hotly anticipated noodle house Sen Yai, which opened its doors to the public this morning. As previously reported, the spot opens at 8a.m. daily to serve Thai breakfast, transitioning into a mostly noodle menu for both lunch and dinner — and diners of Pok Pok and Ping will find some favorites from those spots. Currently on offer: seven soups (like the kuaytiaw reua "Boat Noodles" with stewed beef and the instant-ramen "Mama Naam"), seven stir-fried noodles (including a take on phat si ew and pork-fat-soaked phat Thai), a couple rice dishes, and snacks. Many dishes are customizable with the diner's choice of noodles, from Chinese wheat noodles to the namesake sen yai (fresh wide rice noodles).
