The Carytown battle of the frozen yogurt was decided when Yapple Frozen Yogurt shut its doors. The location will soon house Spiral Noodle, an Asian fusion noodle bar.
Owner Jenny Lin will create the menu. “One of her uncles is a top chef in Hong Kong,” says husband Hon Lin. “She wanted to bring a similar experience here.”
Each noodle bowl will be customized. Diners will choose rice or noodles, the variety of broth, meat and vegetables. “The broth that [Lin will make] is a special, unique recipe, learned from her uncle,” he says.
“We’re changing the interior of Yapple a lot,” says front-of-the-house manager Nelson Benavides. “It didn’t have much in terms of seating or a kitchen.”
Lin is hoping for a late March to early April opening.
