Big flavors come out of small noodle bar inside boxcar

Flavor Favs: Ming's Noodle Bar

SAN ANTONIO – Ming's Noodle Bar, which is located inside an old train boxcar at 5249 McCullough Ave., opened in December and already had a big following. 

A favorite for many at the Pearl Farmers Market, owner and chef Ming decided to open up a brick-and-mortar location.

"They were a little sad and disappointed they couldn't get it during the week, so we went from doing just a weekend thing to now a little bit during the week over here in the new noodle bar," manager Carlos Arredondo said.

The new noodle bar offers authentic Chinese food that gives customers a taste of the food from the streets of Beijing.

"It's going to be a little more authentic," Arredondo said. "We have noodle soups, noodle salads, cold noodles or even Sichuan spicy noodles."

Another popular item on the menu is steamed buns, the Asian version of a slider.

The bun is made with regular yeast, and dry milk powder is added to give it an extra fluffiness. 

Since its opening, Ming's has received a lot of praise. Right now on Facebook they have a high rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars.

"It's nice to know people enjoy the food, and it's something that we strive for," Arredondo said. "It is more about the food, the flavors and enjoying the experience"
