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.
Daddy’s Noodle Shop will be replacing FroyoWorld this winter, according to its owner and University of Connecticut undergraduate student, Henry Duong.
“It’s a family restaurant targeted (at) students,” Duong said. “You kind of picture a family cooking the noodles and that’s how we got the name. We want to bring a family-vibe experience to Storrs.”
