Dakzen is a newly opened eatery specializing in Bangkok-style street food in a relaxed storefront. Owner Panupak Kraiwong named his restaurant Dakzen because it’s a loose translation of the Thai phrase to “chow down,” especially on noodles. The menu includes a variety of bowls filled with noodle or rice dishes, mostly his grandfather’s recipes. Try the savory Khao Moo Daeng, a combination of barbecued pork, crispy pork belly, and sweet sausage over boiled rice, tossed with a sweet red gravy. Another specialty is the Boat Noodles made with meatballs, pork rinds, bean sprouts, water spinach (known as morning glory), and beef or pork, topped with cilantro or scallions.
Dakzen has a cozy interior with bright yellow walls, oversized windows, and a variety of seating at tables and high tops. Yelpers rave about the friendly staff who take the time to explain signature dishes, make recommendations, and answer questions. Dakzen is open every day for lunch and dinner.
