Ben Puchowitz and Shawn Darragh have been planning Cheu Noodle Bar since at least late 2011. What started as a pop-up is finally becoming a storefront and yesterday we got an early look (and bite).
Cheu Noodle Bar, which is opening on Monday, April 1st, has seating for about 32 people, primarily along the bar in front of the open kitchen where Puchowitz is preparing his mostly noodle (but not mostly ramen) menu. All of the noodles are made in-house including the hand torn noodles pictured above.

“The dishes are influenced by lots of different cultures. There’s going to be matzah balls in one of them. I recently learned how to do hand-torn noodles, so I’m going to be doing a hand-torn noodle dish with lamb necks. It’s not your standard stuff.”

The under construction Cheu Noodle Bar (255 S 10th Street) is facing union protesters today and had them yesterday as well. We’ve seen union protesters over the past few months at the Corner Foodery site and Philadelphia Cupcake at 20th and South.
Has anyone spotted them at any other Philadelphia restaurant construction sites recently?

Cheu Noodle Bar has a home and a opening target. Ben Puchowitz of Matyson and Shawn Darragh are aiming to open before the end of February at the former Maru Global at 255 South 10th Street.
The interior has been gutted and new equipment is now being installed. There will be an open kitchen with bar seats along the line. The ramen spot will have room for 30 people and is working on securing a liquor license.
The menu will have be broken down by vegetables, snacks and noodles. Darragh also promises one or two other sections, “but we have to keep something secret.”
