Overseen by chef Chao Li, the new restaurant on Spring Mountain Road is much larger in size when compared to the compact original at 6870 S. Rainbow Blvd.
Close to the intersection with Hauck Street, the 2,434-square-foot space continues the tradition of an open kitchen for diners to watch the noodles spin, and added similar Central China-inspired artwork found at the original location.
On the menu, spicy beef shank, and braised pork with egg appetizers, and the restaurant's noodle soups, and knife-shaved noodle dishes served over rice, including mapo tofu, beef brisket and tomato, Lan-Zhou beef, and hot pepper chicken choices. The kitchen also serves a number of pancakes, featuring Mongolian beef or green onion ingredients, plus its own spin on a beef burrito.
Still waiting for beverage store Tbaar to debut as a next door neighbor, The Noodle Man is hoping to franchise the brand nationally and is already announcing another future location in Spring Valley at 5060 South Fort Apache, inside the former home of Straight From Philly Steakout. Confirmation of the expansion has yet to be revealed.
The Noodle Man, 5130 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 103, 702-367-0890. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 9.30 p.m.
