Pineapple Thai is a new venture from Yehoshua Peled, who told the Brookline selectboard he has 50 years of business experience, and his fiancée, Supaporn Bunnagitkarn. The small spot will have no seating, the Tab noted; it's taking over the space at 6 Cypress St., vacated by Olecito in April.
Live Noodles is heading for 1026 Commonwealth Ave. in Packard's Corner, which most recently housed Chinese takeout spot Quan's Kitchen. The new restaurant will offer hand-pulled noodles from China, proprietor Sam Ho told the selectboard. He knows this cuisine is popular, because along with a business partner, Ho opened up MDM Noodles in Brighton earlier this year. He has since sold his share in that business and is focused on opening Live Noodles, the Tab reported.
The opening menu will include flat and thin noodles, with options like spicy lamb, five seafood stew, spicy hot oil, and beef offal. Spicy Sichuan mala soup is also available, as well as sliced, steamed, and traditional noodle dishes, dim sum, and more.
Look out for Live Noodles to open as soon as two weeks from now, and Pineapple Thai sometime in September.
