Monkey King Noodle Co. brings the taste of legitimate Northern Chinese street food, as treasured by our own experiences eating in the night markets of China and Taiwan.
Staying true to those memories, we make everything to order, starting with our LaMian (hand-pulled) noodles to the decadent Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings) for which we are celebrated.
Fresh ingredients and deep, rich spices are incorporated to delight the senses, and bring you back for more.
Monkey King Noodle Company first started as a tiny, walk-up kitchen serving up hand-pulled noodles out of Deep Ellum. Since their start in 2013, Monkey King has expanded both its operations and loyal fan base with its authentic Chinese street food.
Andrew Chen, one of the owners and chief noodle maker, makes everything from scratch. He's become a semi-superstar for his craft. Chen's restaurants focus on street food — the dishes he lusted for after a night of drinking in Taipei...and so, the "hipster chinese food" cult begin in a small stand in Deep Ellum to the now 3 locations and counting..
