IFresh Noodle Is Replacing Xi'an Street Foods in Allston

A restaurant featuring an increasingly-popular noodle dish will be opening in a space where another noodle place had been.

According to a source (Erika Johnson), IFresh Noodle is planning to open in Allston in the Brighton Avenue space where Xi'an Street Foods had been since early last year. A page within the City of Boston website this, indicating that the new eatery will indeed be taking over that space and that it will apparently be open for lunch and dinner. A sign out front mentions that IFresh Noodle will be a hand-pulled noodle shop and that it will be opening soon, though no specific opening date has been given as of yet.

Hand-pulled noodles (which are also known as biang biang noodles) are typically found in central China and have been showing up in more and more restaurants in the Greater Boston area, including at such spots as Gene’s Chinese Flatbread Cafe and Xi'an Rougamo in downtown Boston (other locations of Gene's are in Woburn and Westford), Noodles King in the Longwood area of the city, Chili Square in Quincy, and Home Taste in Arlington and Watertown.

The address for IFresh Noodle (and the former Xi'an Street Foods) is 182 Brighton Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134.
