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.

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.”

The ramen has been the star at the Cheu Noodle Bar pop-ups but the fresh-made juices are not to be slept on. And now you won’t have to wait to the next pop-up night to enjoy the juices.
Starting tomorrow the fresh made juices will be featured at the both Good Karma Cafes in Center City (928 Pine Street, 331 S 22nd Street). Each day will feature two healthy, veggie and fruit based juices (no sugar added).
At past pop-ups the juices have included flavors like:
- Pineapple – vanilla, jalapeno, thai basil
- Banana – sesame, vietnamese coffee
- Peach Ginger – lemon verbena, yogurt
