After announcing a change in formats back in September, Slurp Noodle Bar (469 Castro St.) will have a soft opening tonight. Formerly Fork Cafe, the new concept will serve pan-Asian noodles. General Manager Keith Hak told us that they “wanted to do something completely different from what used to be served at Fork Cafe.” They want to open a restaurant where you could get noodles from a variety of different regions. Slurp will serve Ramen, Pho and Laksa (Malaysian), just to name a few. Aside from noodles Slurp will also serve crispy vegetarian egg rolls, pork belly steamed buns, salads and items from the wok.
Keith took some photos of the food today and posted them on Facebook. It all looks really fresh and delicious. So let’s hope this new concept works out. Stop by tonight if you’re looking for something different to eat.
