A much praised Valley Boulevard noodle shop shuts its doors

Chuan Yu Noodles Town, a Sichuan spot that opened two years ago on the same block on Valley Boulevard as Pepe's, was a brief shining star in noodle eating circles. LA Weekly's Jonathan Gold praised the restaurant as a specialist in the dan dan mian noodles, a "classic Sichuan street food, whose intricacies can tear families apart and bring close friends to blows." Eileen Likes to Eat blogged about it twice, despite misgivings after her father heard about it on a Chinese radio station where the hosts "visit a restaurant, try their dishes, and rave about everything." After the first visit, though, she concluded "this little restaurant was super good."

But SinoSoul's Tony Chen reports that the praise was apparently not enough to sustain Chuan Yu and its doors are now boarded. Chen, for one, does not see it as a great loss to local noodle eating, writing they "didn’t pull their noodles, nor were they singularly focused on the supposed Si Chuan cuisine. It was just yet another noodle & deli shack."

Now it appears to be another noodle & deli shack that's gone the way of the rapidly rotating eatery doors on Valley Boulevard.  A phone call to the restaurant rang with no answer.
