Uncle Zhou, a famed NYC eatery known for its hand-pulled noodles, has officially arrived in Plano.

The restaurant quietly opened its doors at 8200 Preston Road for lunch and dinner service over the weekend, bringing an exciting destination for Henan cuisine to the bustling suburb. As reported previously by Eater, Uncle Zhou opened its first location in Queens, New York, where it quickly earned a reputation as one of the city’s best noodle spots. It also scored recognition via Michelin’s prestigious Bib Gourmand list.

Now that it’s landed in Plano, diners can look forward to dishes like Henan hand-pulled noodles served in a brothy soup, sweet and sour fish paired with “dragon’s beard” noodles, and Sichuan favorites like mapo tofu and kung pao chicken. The star of the show is, of course, the noodles, served in the restaurant’s famed “dial oil” and with proteins like spicy beef tendon and pork in Peking sauce.

At present, Uncle Zhou is in a “soft launch phase,” and per a few early Yelp reviews, that means that service can be a little spotty.
