Dagu Rice Noodle (大鼓米线) now open in Squirrel Hill (for pick-up).



Dagu Rice Noodle (大鼓米线) opened for the first time today, May 15, for pick-up orders. Signage went up in November 2019 in the space formerly occupied by The Magic Noodle and Sun Penang. It is a Chinese chain---as in, a chain from China---with the nearest location in Cleveland:
In the middle of the Ming Dynasty, there was a restaurant without a sign near the flowery Drum tower in Yunnan, Kunming. Whenever the city had a happy news, people rang the drum to celebrate. Along with the joy of drumbeat, people flocked to the unnamed little restaurant and had bowls of hot rice noodle soup, meaning “smooth long time”. Because of this joy, with the honesty of the shop owner, the little restaurant eventually became a century-old business.
Dagu Rice Noodle is located at 5829 Forbes Ave. (map).
