Sang Kee adding a new location

The Chinese duck specialist is bound for University City.

Sang Kee adding a new location

Yet another restaurant deal in University City:

Michael Chow, whose Sang Kee Peking Noodle House has been wowing folks at Ninth and Vine since 1980 or so, told me that he has signed a lease for the Sheraton University City Hotel at 36th and Chestnut Streets, which over the years has hosted bar-themed street-front occupants such as Shula's 2 and Top Dog.

He hopes to open in a couple of months.

He says the concept will combine the noodle concept from Chinatown with the polish of his Sang Kee Asian Bistro in Wynnewood, and will have a noodle bar and open kitchen.
