Noodles and Rice closed in August of this year.
It didn't take very long for someone to swoop into the recently closed Noodles and Rice Café space in Mills 50.

Hoi Nguyen, one of the men who brought King Bao and Poke Hana to the district, will bring Chi-Kin, a Korean fried chicken concept, to 813 N. Mills Ave.

In addition to KFC wings – they'll definitely be better than Bonchon's, I'm told [editor's note: not sure this is possible?] – Nguyen says the Chi-Kin will serve half and whole fried chickens, KFC sandwiches and Korean staples like bibimbap bowls, bulgogi, a variety of bonchon and, for dessert, brick toast.

Waffle fries will also be served in the 2,400-square-foot space, so look out, Chick-fil-A. Nguyen hopes to open Chi-Kin by mid-November. [Ed. note: calendar reminder is set!]
