Qian Kitchen, a restaurant specializing in Guizhou-style soup noodles, recently closed its doors at Aberdeen Centre’s food court.

Replacing it is Champion, a restaurant selling potato noodle soup - a traditional food from northeast China.

The restaurant has been operating at Crystal Mall in Burnaby for years and it opened its second location in Richmond on Wednesday.

“I chose to open another location at Aberdeen Centre because there is a younger demographic here, and our potato noodles are usually popular among these customers,” said Jose Wang, owner of the restaurant.

“We have been really busy since the opening of the store.”

Potato noodle soup is usually cooked in a ceramic pot mixed with tofu skin, eggs, vegetables and meat.
