Fans of watching hand-pulled noodles prepared live in the kitchen have a new destination in Spring Valley, focused on both Chinese and Japanese favorites.
Noodle Show was taken over the former site of Golden Dragon Chinese Cuisine at the Tropicana Marketplace, home to the Black Bear Diner and close to the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Jones Boulevard.
Creating its menu in an open kitchen, Noodle Show also serves soup, entrees such as kung pao beef and walnut shrimp, plus appetizers including “spicy beef shank with dry tofu,” fried edamame and takoyaki.
Handmade noodle options include the $9.99 Shanxi knife sliced noodle soup, and spicy and sour creations. Ramen dishes range from braised pork belly, to the elaborate $18.99 sea cucumber, shrimp, squid, mussel, and fish cake combination, promoted for its medicinal properties and helping “blood pressure” and “hyper tension.”
Dry noodles include the “Shanxi Oil Spill” created with garlic, ginger, and beef shank. The collection of chow mein dishes feature Mongolian beef and “hot pepper shredded chicken” for diners not afraid of a little heat.
Noodle Show, 6120 W. Tropicana Ave., 702-790-1100. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
