Crab noodles at Opal Thai Food

Unlike Thai-American noodle stir-fries, which tend to clump strands together in sweet, goopy sauces, dishes born in Opel Sirichandhra’s wok are authentic and minimally dressed. The crab noodles deliver the sweetness of the crustacean with the heat of chilies, the tang of lime juice and fish sauce and the crunch of peanuts, a harmonious balance that’s so right.
