Star Anise Vietnamese Noodles

Posted By on Thu, Dec 6, 2007 at 9:47 AM

Some happy news for those with a fear of vacant storefronts: the former home of The Med (1571 Barrington) didn't stay empty for long. Starting this Sunday, a new restaurant, Star Anise Vietnamese Noodles, will be open for business in the former Med space. The new restaurant's co-owned by chef Andy Mok, who was also the original owner of the Sushi House up on Quinpool. (He sold the Sushi House a couple of years back, after running it for more than 10 years.) The new restaurant will serve a variety of different Asian dishes, but will specialize in pho (Vietnamese beef-and-noodle soup) which Mok prepares using beef bone, herbs, noodles and carefully selected beef. "We try to make a very, very good soup," says Mok's wife, Toni Chan, the restaurant's other owner. "It's not just a soup for appetizer," adds Mok. "It's not heavy, but it's filling." The restaurant's named after star anise, a star-shaped, cinnamon-like spice that Mok uses in many of his dishes, including the beef-and-noodle soup. For now, the restaurant will be open every day, from 11am to 10pm. Expect quick service, reasonable prices and daily specials. Still not won over? It's best to let the immortal words of Joey Tribbiani be your guide: "Mmmm...noodle soup." Give the restaurant a ring at 422-2602.
