For just 10 quarters you can get a bowl of flat-out awesome off-menu boat noodles with a deeply layered beef broth from beef blood and bones, garnished with pork cracklings at Zen Yai Thai. Barbecue is the other signature -- not usually a strong point at Tenderloin Thai spots, but here it's obligatory. Also worth getting: shrimp spring rolls and the house tom yum soup -- just know though, those cost more than $3.
