Less than half a dozen 24-hour Asian restaurants serve the high volume Spring Mountain Road scene, but a new round-the-clock concept will soon be bringing a large Vietnamese and Chinese-inspired menu to Chinatown.
Moving into the Shan Tau Square, Lee’s Noodle House will slot between Bank Atcharawan’s Thai-focused Lamaii and the decade-old, Korean options at Sura BBQ Buffet, across the parking lot from the Macy’s furniture outlet.
Operated by the same management team that have taken over Henderson’s Pho Little Saigon at 9210 S. Eastern Ave., Lee’s Noodle House is already promising future $5.99 lunch specials and a very full beverage menu featuring Vietnamese drinks, juices, and flavored ice teas, slushes, smoothies, yogurt and fruit choices, and boba teas.
Diners can expect familiar Chinese favorites, plus more adventurous món nhậu options including fried quail or frog, “lamb herbal leaves hotpot, “coconut swirly escargot with basil,” and “grilled razer clams in garlic and onion.”
The six-inch long bahn mi sandwiches are prepared with house-made mayonnaise, and customers can also order udon, porridge creations, vermicelli rice noodle soups, vegan dishes, and pho bowls that can be customized with ingredients including rare steak, tripe, beef, pork, and chicken.
An estimated opening date has not been announced.
