Highly Anticipated Hong Noodle Bar in Dover, NH, Had an Overwhelming Amount of Orders Opening Day
The Dover, New Hampshire, community has been all jazzed up for Hong Asian Noodle Bar to open since we heard about it back in December! Soup dumplings are up there in my top ten favorite foods and I was thrilled to hear I no longer needed to venture down to Chinatown in Boston to fetch them!
Hong Asian Noodle Bar is where the Dover House of Pizza was on 519 Central Ave.
They have completely renovated the inside and it is unlike anywhere else in Dover. SO COOL!
They did a soft opening and offered a limited menu last Saturday. They aren’t fully staffed yet and their hope was to gain experience little by little. Well, there was nothing soft about this opening! Once word got out that Hong Asian Noodle Bar was open they got slammed with orders and I mean SLAMMED! They started running of supplies and ingredients at a rapid pace.
About an hour later they posted on their Facebook to let everyone know that they were running out of food. The overwhelming amount of orders was exciting but unexpected. They were 100% transparent and apologized for opening without being fully prepared.
What I loved to see was the kindness and grace from the Dover community in the comments section. People are excited to try this place but the overarching theme in the comments was “Take your time. Don’t be hard on yourself! No need to apologize!” We love to see that.
