Not long ago I noted that the space vacated by ABC Bakery & Cafe on Jackson Street in Chinatown would be filled by a new member of the Spicy King "empire., Pot & Noodle. I have more information now on Pot & Noodle’s role in SK’s scheme of things.
The Spicy King people are importing state-of-the-art noodle-making machines from China. Since (at least some of) the restaurants they operate do not have enough space to accommodate these machines, they will be installed in the capacious basement of the Jackson St. establishment, which will serve as a central facility for the making of fresh noodles for their roster of stores (see the window graphic below).
As for Pot & Noodle itself (oddly also named “Chongqing Xiao Mian” in Chinese), in addition to serving some of the same noodle and side dishes as their other restaurants, it will offer “House Special Mini-Hot Pots” for $16.95 and also have a “Fresh Juice Bar” serving fruit juices for $4.25-$4.50 (see menus below).
