Updated: 11th Oct 2014; This restaurant is closed.
There are quite a number of new restaurants opening in Richmond these days. Here is one more that Suanne and the boys came across yesterday when they went for a haircut.
Suanne had been bringing the boys to this place for their haircut for years. It is the cheapest Suanne knows of and they operate in the strip mall where Alleluia Cafe (Free Milk Tea Refills) and New Concept Hot Pot (3-soup hot pot) is. I think a lot of people know of this cheap haircut place. It is super busy and they don’t take walkins. You need to make an appointment first.
Just next door to New Concept Hot Pot, there is an opening soon sign. There is no English name (yet) as the name sign is entirely in Chinese. The three character Chinese name translates into something like “fish-vermicelli-house”. The tagline calls out the dish they serve which is “Yunnan Crossing Bridge Noodles”. Something like that.
I blogged about the stall in the Crystal Mall Food Court that serves this Yunnan Cross Bridge Rice Noodles before and on that post is a story of … the origin of this unique noodle. Go and read about it here.
This restaurant is located on the 8131 Westminster Highway block you see above. I have no idea when it will open but I will be interested to make a visit when they do. It will be interesting to see how a speciality noodle house will do where every restaurant is trying to survive by offering expanded menus.
