Homestyle Shanghai Noodle Shop Adds Another Key Restaurant to Historic Filipinotown

Noodles from Woon

Woon Kitchen is up and running

Casual noodle shop Woon Kitchen is now open in Historic Filipinotown. The onetime pop-up restaurant first launched some limited hours yesterday.

This is the first standalone Woon restaurant for owner Keegan Fong, who has been doing pop-ups around town at places like cocktail bar ETA in Highland Park for years. He runs the upstart spot with his mother, affectionately known as Mama Fong, under a sign that advertises casual homestyle Chinese food. That means everything from Shanghai-style noodles and bao to stir-fried vegetables and beyond, with alcohol to come down the line.

As for the space, this is the former Hungry Pig Filipino barbecue restaurant building, totaling little more than 1,400 square feet in all. The space has been peeled back and largely left alone, save for some light wood tables, pendant lighting, and a long wooden ordering bar.

Fong sent an email around just yesterday announcing the early opening, saying:

What began as a last minute idea to pop up at a local event evolved into more of a passion project that our family decided to do in addition to our full-time jobs… This is our first restaurant, and we’ve still got a lot of things to figure out. But there’s no good time to throw ourselves in it, so please come say hi.

Hours for the new Woon in Historic Filipinotown currently run Sundays and Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and again from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Those same hours hold Friday and Saturday, but with dinner extended to 11 p.m.

Woon. 2920 W. Temple St., Los Angeles, CA.
