Chef driven and Southeast-Asian inspired noodle shop. Showcasing the childhood memories and travels of Chef Donny’s food journey.

Ma Kin Khao (come eat)

Khao Noodle Shop is a cozy restaurant in East Dallas, serving Chef Donny’s signature Boat Noodles and other Laotian bites inspired by his mom, his childhood memories of her home-cooking and his travels throughout Southeast Asia. It’s a place to khao gun (come together) and to share home-cooked dishes with friends and family.

Chef Donny is fully committed to being a conscious business by sourcing their ingredients from local community gardens and farmer’s markets and reducing their environmental footprint inside the kitchen and out.

After several years of hosting pop-ups throughout the DFW area, Chef Donny found a home for his rice noodle shop in an area where Southeast Asian refugees call home. It made sense to start here as a way to pay tribute his family’s’ roots.

His love of cooking came from learning from the best—his mom.

“From a very young age, I grew up helping my mom in the kitchen at home and at our family restaurant. I did everything, from bussing tables, chopping veggies to cooking. Everything was made from scratch and with love. I want to model that at Khao Noodle Shop.”

The word Khao has many meanings: ‘khao’ by itself means rice or food, ‘khao gun’ means come together, ‘kin khao’ means to come eat and ‘khao kin’ means food. “The name represents everything I hope the shop to become—a home for friends and family to come together to enjoy great Laotian food.” So, #MaKinKhao (come eat)!”
