NORWALK, CONN. -- A sticky, hot, and steamy dimension has been added to downtown South Norwalk’s dining scene with the arrival of Mecha Noodle Bar.
The popular noodle house, which originated in Fairfield, opened a new spot on Washington Street earlier this month. It serves dinner seven days a week, and plans to start serving lunch in January.
It boasts a 60-seat dining space and 15-seat bar where draft beers, spiked bubble teas, and Asian spirits such as schochu and sake will be served.
The restaurant is a joint venture between longtime friends Tony Pham and Richard Reyes who say their Southeast Asian menu is grounded in the satisfying familiarity of comfort food. Stick-to-your-ribs dishes borrow from the Vietnamese, Korean and Chinese cultures, they said.
“When it comes to the dishes of your childhood, the standards are high. Every color, flavor, and aroma inspires us to connect diverse communities of people via Aisan comfort food” said Pham.
South Norwalk’s downtown has “already been supporting us in a big way,” Reyes said, adding that “it only seemed natural to bring guests in this area a wholly new and refreshing concept.”
Mecha Noodle Bar, located at 116 Washington St., currently serves dinner from 5 p.m. - 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 4:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. on Sundays.
