As one of the hordes of people living close to the always seedy Washington Avenue, I'm constantly excited by a new restaurant opening on the tourist-laden thoroughfare.

I don't expect to ever find anything other than bad pizza, bad burgers and bad tattoos on one of Miami Beach's main drags. Yet I remain tethered to the hope that one day an acceptable eatery might open within walking distance. Maybe, just maybe, I'll be saved from a life of Big Pink delivery.

So when the suspiciously named Sriracha House opened last month as a noodle house with self-described street-style, Pan-Asian offerings I let myself hope.

Ordering is done Chipotle style. Select your starch, your protein, your vegetables, your sauce and have at it. The combination is quickly stir fried in a wok and handed over in a Chinese takeout-style box. A portion of whole-wheat noodles had a pleasant bite and came in with plenty of sliced pork, crunchy bok choy and meaty shiitake mushroom for about $10. All our topped with a variety of home made sauces ranging from Indonesian black pepper and lemongrass to and sweet-sour Mongolian tamarind.

"We wanted to bring something simple, something from Asia," said owner Emilio Benzadon. The menu was inspired by trips with his wife Jessica Knopf, who once ran the Clarabelle's Cupcakes food truck, to Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam and the Philippines.

"We always liked street food and wanted to do something simple, healthy and inexpensive," he added.

I got really excited when i saw this place opened, and i just ate it for the first time today. I was let down, the noodles were overcooked, all i could taste was ginger, and the portion was mighty small =(
