A cafe dedicated to cart noodles is opening in Bristol.  

The existing Sai Kung Cafe on Park Street is currently being converted to serve the popular Hong Kong street food.                 

The cafe next to the 168 Oriental supermarket is due to reopen on April 15, once the conversion is complete.

It comes amid a number of changes for the Chinese food scene in Bristol.    

George Lai, who owns Sai Kung Cafe, told BristolWorld: “It’s being turned into a very traditional Hong Kong cart noodle cafe.       

“It will serve noodle soup with different choices of meats and gets cooked extremely quickly.”    

He added: “It’s introducing something new from the Far East into Bristol which we’ve never seen before and which is quite unique.”

Sai Kung Cafe had served more traditional duck roast and side dishes, but George says the shift to cart noodles will bring a “very different style of food and dining experience”.      

The conversion comes after George opened 168 Kitchen, a new restaurant serving Cantonese and Dim Sum cuisine, on College Green.     

While the former restaurant space at the Little Chinatown building on Nelson Street, which George also owns, has been turned into a fishmongers, butchers and bakery.
