Crawfish and Noodles, one of Houston’s most beloved destinations for spicy, Viet-Cajun crawfish, will soon open its first location inside the loop.
The restaurant’s second outpost, joining the Asiatown original, will make its debut this fall at the Houston Farmers Market at 2520 Airline Drive. It’s one of three seriously exciting new dining establishments planned for the Farmers Market, joining Wild Oats, from chef Chris Shepherd’s Underbelly Hospitality group. A butcher shop from R-C Ranch Texas Craft Beef in Angleton will also open at the market.
The restaurant is set to occupy an expansive 3,298 square foot space that overlooks the Houston Farmers Market’s forthcoming green space. Expect the same classic dishes, like salt-and-pepper crab, basil fried rice, and of course, buttery, garlicky crawfish in Crawfish & Noodles’s signature style.
For those who are unfamiliar with Crawfish and Noodles’s spicy, saucy mudbugs, the restaurant has grown into an Asiatown staple since it opened in 2008, and is helmed by James Beard Award semi-finalist Trong Nguyen. It also appeared on the Houston episode of Ugly Delicious, the Netflix show from Momofuku chef David Chang.
No word yet on when exactly Crawfish and Noodles will arrive, but expect it to open sometime this fall. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
