The duo behind the 715-square-foot casual noodle shop, Designer Caroline Chou and Chef Kevin Lim, worked together to create a cohesive experience from the secret alley entrance to the menu, the overall concept, the interior design and even the plating.

The two own and operate the restaurant as well. Lim is both a professionally trained architect and chef from Boston’s Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
