Thai noodle shop Dakzen (195 Elm St., Somerville) opens in Davis Square this weekend — Sunday, June 17 — with a limited menu to start.

Eater spoke to Nutthachai Chaojaroenpong, a rep for the restaurant, earlier this year, and he explained that the goal is to make diners feel “like being at your close friend’s house, where you can come any time and whenever you want. We just want to make its atmosphere similar to street food in Thailand, where you can just simply walk in, order, and eat.”

The bulk of Dakzen’s menu is street food-style noodle soup, like boat noodles, a dish that has a rich history in Thailand. It’s a dense soup, with pork blood mixed and cooked into the broth. Also look for yen ta fo (with sweet, sour, and spicy flavors, typically served with crunchy squid or seafood), tom yum noodles, pad thai, khao soi, fried rice, and more.

Look for the doors to open at noon on Sunday.
