Some curious readers asked us to look into Noodle Hut, which replaces the shuttered Xi'an Kitchen on Convoy. The restaurant is now under new ownership; its proprietors also run Szechuan Chef just down the street.
Designed to be a quick and casual eating spot, Noodle Hut’s menu features more than 30 varieties of homemade noodles, from noodle soups to braised noodles. Diners who liked Xi’an Kitchen’s offerings will be glad to know that signature plates from China’s Shaanxi province will also be served here, from hand-ripped "biang biang" noodles to meat sandwiches and soaked bread or "pao mao" soup.
The eatery will also serve street food from other regions, including dumplings, spicy and numbing Szechuan noodles, barbecue meat, and entrees ranging from cumin lamb or beef to chicken with dried orange peel.
The space, which has been throughly remodeled, officially opens today and will operate daily from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
