Noodle Sensation Opens a Permanent Spot in Culver City
Citizen Public Market
February 9, 2023
The day has finally arrived, with Bang Bang Noodles taking over an art-inspired stall at Culver City’s Citizen Public Market as of last week. Fans of the somewhat mercurial operation should find it helpful to have Bang Bang Noodles now serving consistently six days a week from lunch to dinner.
This means that Lee’s other services in Downtown LA and Highland Park are currently on hiatus so he can focus on the Culver City opening, though he’s promised on Instagram that they’ll come back at some point.
In early 2020, Bang Bang Noodles, which offered a bit of a show from seasoned journeyman chef Robert Lee, who prepared Xi’an-style biang-biang mian for eager diners in Highland Park. Lee, who worked at upscale restaurants in San Sebastian, New York City, and LA, would slap noodles across a board for all to see. Known for Instagram-friendly hand-pulled noodles encased with chile oil and chopped cilantro, Lee’s noodles developed a significant following over the years.
Bang Bang Noodles is located at 9355 Culver Boulevard, Suite J, Culver City, CA 90232, and is open Tuesday to Sunday, 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.
