‘Noodleholics’ is set to open a second location in May 2021

With upcoming additions, much like Tuk Tuk Thai, the town of Oro Valley seems to be sprouting new local restaurants in 2021, and there’s another one to get excited about.

Noodlesholics, which opened up back in 2018 on Grant Rd., is expanding its delicious noodles into Plaza Escondida shopping center found at 7850 N. Oracle Rd.

Noodleholics is taking over the spot that previously housed Ragazzi Northern Italian Cuisine, and plans to open its doors sometime in the beginning or mid-May 2021.

Noodleholics co-owner Claire Wang was born in Guangzhou, China and moved to the US in 1998. While her background is in education and linguistics, she yearned for a place that offered the food of her childhood. Tucson’s Chinese food scene is predominantly Sichuan, so she decided to open a restaurant with the Guangzhou and Guilin cuisine of her past.

The menu features around 10 different noodle soups and a small plate menu that features around 10 different options.

Wheat noodles are made in-house, sliced on the slightly thicker side to cling onto the broth. The Guilin rice noodles are on the thinner side, similar to vermicelli.

Noodleholics is located at 3502 E. Grant Rd., with its second location coming to 7850 N. Oracle Rd. Keep up with Noodleholics on Facebook. For more information, visit noodleholics.com.
