Soup dumpling testing at Cheu Noodle Bar

A very satisfying lunch at Cheu Noodle Bar was made that much better with some information on Shawn Darragh’s and Ben Puchowitz’s East Passyunk’s venture. Darragh told me that the 50-seat (plus another 30-seats outdoors) restaurant will be called Bing Bing. Bing is Cantonese for dumplings and Bing Bing is just more fun to say. The former El Zarape will be a dim sum house with a large selection of dumplings and buns.

If all goes well, Darragh and Puchowitz will have their take on dim sum cranking by Labor Day.

    Bing is not exactly Cantonese for dumpling, it’s more like a filled bread.

    The cool thing is that Bing Bing will probably hire those same Mesicans to work in their new Restaurant from El Zarape.
