We’ve been big fans of Dumpling Shack ever since we spotted them frying up shengjianbaos in a corner of the Broadway schoolyard market many years ago. They’ve been smashing it at Old Spitalfields Market and now we are buzzing to hear that they are working on a new noodle concept called Fen Noodles.
Fen Noodles will also be opening up in one of the Old Spitalfields kitchen units later in the year but before it fully opens, there will be a menu tasting on September 17th. To test out dishes for the new menu, everything will be just £5 and you’ll be encouraged to give your feedback to help shape what works and what doesn’t.
With an early look at the menu, it’s certainly sounding like another hit, with fresh hand pulled noodles forming the bulk of the menu. There’s going to be slow cooked lamb with noodles tossed in a spicy tangy sauce; lamb noodle soup topped with slices of lamb shoulder and a bone broth; and big plate chicken, with chicken swimming in an aromatic both with potatoes and noodles. We’re also personally loving the sound of the noodles in curry sauce with onions and potatoes.
The preview event is definitely one to head down to and we can’t wait for the full opening to come around either. For more follow @fen_noodles.
