Chinatown certainly sees its share of restaurant closings, sometimes with a place shuttering to open quickly as a new pan-Asian place. Wendy’s Noodle Cafe made it almost 10 years before closing in the busy neighborhood now stacked with restaurants spanning cuisine from China and Japan, Vietnam and Korea, and more.
“We are sad to inform you that Wendy’s Noodle Cafe’s last day of service will be tomorrow Wednesday, November 28, 2018. The team at Wendy’s Noodle Cafe thanks our friends, family, and customers for all of your support. We are so happy to have served you these years,” the restaurant posted on its Facebook page.
Wendy’s Noodle Cafe specialized in Hong Kong and Chaozhou cuisine and featured wonton noodles, pan-fried rice cakes, steamed egg custard, mango tapioca, and durian crepes. Wendy Lee opened the restaurant in 2009. Lee showcased her previous work at Chang’s Hong Kong Cuisine & Dim Sum.
Lee tells an Eater Vegas tipster that the oversaturation of restaurants in Chinatown caused her to close. She plans to regroup and perhaps open a new space in 2019.
