All About the New Viet Noodle Bar

FROM OUT OF NOWHERE comes the new media darling of central Atwater Village, only a few blocks down from former media darling Canele. At 3133 1/2 Glendale Blvd., it's Viet Noodle Bar:
  • Eat Drink & Be Merry - We headed towards a non-descript brick building with no signage, and only orange lettering on the window identifying the establishment. We found ourselves surrounded by tall white walls in a long and narrow cavity. There were two, long communal-style, wooden tables that extended from the front to the back of the restaurant. Old, beaten-up book lined the right side of the wall – over 250 books.
  • Daily Candy LA - Sometimes it feels like you have to travel to the Far East to get a good bowl of bun chay. Or at least trek to Atwater.
  • Eater LA - Offshoot of Silverlake's Soy Cafe opened today.
  • Eating LA - The new shop will concentrate on noodles, particularly bun and northern style pho - which apparently has flat noodles, no basil, and will come in chicken and vegetarian varieties.
Conversations starting on Chowhound and Yelp, too. Viet Noodle Bar is open 11:00am to 3:00pm, 5:00pm to 11:00pm.
