Monkey King Noodle Company, one of Dallas’s best destinations for dumplings and noodles, has opened its latest outpost in Richardson.

The restaurant announced its arrival at 520 Lockwood Drive in an Instagram post over the weekend. With this new outpost and a restaurant that opened in Lake Highlands earlier this year, the fledgling chain from noodle maker Andrew Chen has come a long way from its start as a small noodle stand in Deep Ellum. It still operates in that neighborhood, albeit in a bigger home than the original. It’s also expanded to Carrollton and opened an outpost inside Legacy Hall, both of which have since closed.

For those who haven’t been to Monkey King, expect some of the city’s best hand-pulled noodles, juicy soup dumplings, and top-notch spicy cucumber salad. There’s also stir-fries, wonton soup, Taiwanese chicken nuggets, and more excellent eats on offer.

Now open in Richardson, Monkey King Noodle Company is operating until 10 p.m. daily.
