Fans of chef Angus An’s Thai fare now have a new spot to frequent come mealtime: the award-winning restauranteur has officially opened the doors to his latest venture, Sen Pad Thai, on Granville Island.
Situated in the peninsula’s Net Loft (70–1666 Johnston Street)—the building that houses shops like Liberty Wine Merchants and Paper-Ya across from the Granville Island Public Market—the casual food stand specializes in pad Thai and other Thai-influenced plates.
Inspired by street food in Chanthaburi, Thailand, the menu features variations on the traditional stir-fried noodle dish, including Pad Thai Goong, which is served with stripe shrimp; Pad Pu Sen Chan, which is prepared with tender crab meat; and Pad Mi Korat, which is accompanied by crispy pork.
Rice-sheet stir-fries, fried rice, and daily curry specials are also available. Side dishes include chef Angus’s crispy wings with Thai garlic and papaya salad. Black sticky rice in pandan and coconut and sweet banana roti serve as dessert.
Entrees start at $10 and appetizers at $8. The counter-service eatery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sen Pad Thai is the latest addition to chef An’s roster of restaurants, which includes Maenam and Chinatown’s Fat Mao. In 2015, the restauranteur opened his first food-stand concept, Freebird Chicken Shack, in New Westminster’s River Market.
