The Oro Valley and the surrounding area have seen strong growth in local cuisine, and now there is another new place to discover.
Noodlesholics, which opened in 2018 on Grant Rd., officially opened its second location in the Plaza Escondida Mall located at 7850 N. Oracle Rd.
The place previously housed Ragazzi Northern Italian Cuisine and has been undergoing renovations for a few months. The restaurant is excited to open the new location, which is still in the process of finishing some final touches, and has posted the following on Facebook:
“We will constantly improve and decorate, but we would like to start eating.”
Noodleholics co-owner Claire Wang was born in Guangzhou, China, and moved to the United States in 1998. Although she had a background in education and linguistics, she longed for a place that offered her nourishment. childhood. Tucson’s Chinese food scene is mostly Sichuan, so she decided to open a restaurant with the Guangzhou and Guilin cuisine from her past.
The menu has around 10 different noodle soups and a small plate menu has around 10 different options. Wheat noodles are homemade, sliced on the slightly thicker side to cling to the broth. Guilin rice noodles are thinner, similar to vermicelli.
The new location comes with new opening hours at both sites.
The new restaurant on Oracle is open 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday, closed Tuesday, then 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday to Sunday. The original location on Grant will be closed on Mondays from 11:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Friday to Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday.
