Fort Worth’s Food Hall at Crockett Row adds hand-pulled noodle shop
There’s a cool new restaurant in the Food Hall on Crockett Row with roots in Dallas’ Deep Ellum: Monkey King Noodle CompanyThe restaurant, which serves hand-drawn noodles, soups and dumplings, opens on April 26th.
Owner and chief noodle maker Andrew Chen founded the Deep Ellum restaurant in 2013 to promote authentic North China street food. The original location opened with a storefront window that opened onto Main Street where passers-by could see the noodles forming on the spot.
The menu is inspired by the night markets of China and Taiwan and features noodle dishes, soups and salads, as well as different types of dumplings, including pork dumplings and vegetarian dumplings in two varieties – edamame and mushroom.
New additions are wonton soup and tater tots with Taiwanese toppings, which can be ordered vegan or topped with ground pork.
Monkey King is no stranger to grocery halls as he previously ran a booth in Legacy Hall, the grocery hall in Plano. Monkey King also had a restaurant in Carrollton. However, both locations were closed in 2018.
In the Fort Worth grocery store, the Monkey King Noodle Company will replace Rollin ‘N Bowlin’ which will open a larger store in downtown Fort Worth.
