Dan Dan Noodles for University City!
Han Dynasty, the rapidly growing Sichuan empire from Han Chiang (Royersford, Exton. Old City, Manayunk), will grow to a fifth location later this spring.
It's taking over the former Midatlantic at 3711 Market St., in the Science Center. (The center confirms that the lease was signed today.)
Chiang's partner Kevin Huang, who said minor cosmetic work will be done, says Washington, D.C., is their next stop.
Updated: Chiang says he will try to open the second week of May, but he does not seem optimistic. He said trade-union representatives paid him a visit and "suggested" that he dismiss his work crew.
