A Reddit post questioning when Daddy’s Noodle Bar will open in East Lyme from a month ago has lead to worries over whether or not Storrs Center will be gaining a pho restaurant. The Daily Campus reported back in April 2018 that construction at Daddy’s Noodle Shop was delayed due to electrical work that was being done without the proper permits. Owner Anh Duong said then that the restaurant aimed to open in June 2018.
A new ramen and karaoke bar is in the process of setting up shop in downtown Storrs Center. Its owners, third semester psychology student Jason Poon and his family, have owned around eight restaurants over the years and have been outspoken critics of Daddy’s Noodle Shop’s delayed opening.
