Street Food Pops Up in Carrollton

Street Food Pops Up in Carrollton

Monkey King Noodle Company in Carrollton hosted a one-night pop up event that featured the culinary creations of four of Dallas’ most inventive Asian chefs. Focused on Asian ‘street-food’ style dishes that the chefs say satisfy their childhood memories, and their individual specialties. The chefs include Dien Nguyen, Andrew Chen, Tuan Pham, and Donny Sirisavath from their respective restaurants: Sumo Shack, Monkey King Noodle Co., Four Sisters (a not yet open restaurant that will have a Vietnamese focused menu), and DonDarkooPopups. A serious list of serious eats accompanied them, from boat noodles, to fois gras pork rinds, the event served guests until the food ran out. Knowing the chefs and their affinity towards deliciousness, it only took massive crowds two and a half hours to clear the entire stock, a success for the chefs, and all those lucky enough to find a place in line early enough to catch the food before it ran dry.
