Lao noodle popup Khao Poon coming to Thip Khao on Tuesdays in September

There's more Laotian food coming to Columbia Heights: Thip Khao will begin hosting the Khao Poon noodle shop on Tuesdays in September. Khao Poon, run by Thip Khao owner Seng Luangrath and former Doi Moi chef Deth Khaiaphone,  previously had a pop-up at Union Market.

The Washingtonian has the full story -- they're looking for a permanent space in Petworth, Brookland or a similar area.

The dishes will include noodle dishes like green curry with seafood and red curry chicken over vermicelli (which is what Khao Poon means in Lao.) There will also be Lao pho, which has different spices like lemongrass, ginger and galangal, which is like ginger. Other dishes will include starters like skewers, laab salads (also at Thip Khao) and vegetarian and vegan items.

Sounds pretty tasty, and September isn't too far away.
