Yesterday, Edmonton’s popular Prairie Noodle Shop announced on social media that it will serve its last bowl of ramen on October 24.
For the last five years, Prairie Noodle Shop has focused on creating innovative flavours using high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients that pay homage to the Prairies while upholding the traditional origins of the cuisine.
Teamwork and community have always been at the forefront of Prairie Noodle Shop’s culinary ideology, and while the news of the impending closure is certainly saddening, co-owner Arden Tse and executive chef Eric Hanson remained positive during their announcement, thanking the community for its support throughout their five-year residence and encouraging its patrons to continue supporting other local businesses.
“Thank you #yegfood community for your incredible support over the last five years and allowing us to serve you with something different inspired by the prairies,” Prairie Noodle Shop said on Twitter. “We took a chance, and hit a pandemic. What are you gonna do?”
