A new Asian fusion, Tex-Mex and Laotian spot has opened up shop in the neighborhood. The newcomer, called Mama Noy's Kitchen, is located at 1700 W. Parmer Lane, Suite 100.
Laos-born chef Noy Keomorokot, who started this business as food truck, draws culinary inspiration from her late mother, other Asian cuisines, and experiences growing up on Southern California, notes the website.
Options on the menu include Kick Butt chicken fried rice and beef skewers, kimchi fried rice, and Tres Amigos tacos. Favorite soups and sides include the spicy papaya salad and Mama Noy's Noodle Soup, which is filled with ground pork and vegetables in a tangy broth. (Check out the menu.)
The new arrival has proven popular thus far, with a five-star rating out of seven reviews on Yelp.
Brian M., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on April 3, wrote, "Amazing food and great service! ... I got the Kick Butt chicken fried rice and beef skewers. I asked for an eight level spicy, and it was pretty good. When I asked for some Sriracha, they felt bad that it wasn't spicy enough and gave me a free Laos-style papaya salad extra spicy, which it was, and was very good."
Yelper Jenna T. added, “We had the Godzilla roll with beef and the Amigos tacos. The portions are huge, the vegetables are fresh and everything is amazingly flavorful. I love the side sauces so much. I will definitely go back.”
