Fortune BBQ Noodle House opened this Friday, September 9th, at 18 SE 82nd Avenue. The restaurant occupies the once vacant storefront that previously housed Giant Gyros at the corner of E Burnside Street and SE 82nd Avenue. The first few days of operation brought in a steady volume of customers, depleting some of the menu items.
An article in Bridgetown Bites first identified Fortune BBQ Noodle House as the new tenet for this storefront last month. This new business continues over two decades of restaurant operations from this location. Before serving Chinese barbecue duck and pork, Giant Gyros offered Mediterranean food from 2017 until closing earlier this year. Subway sandwich shop occupied this space for many years prior to that, and plumbing permits indicate it was once an AM/PM convenience store.
As a new venture for the owners, the restaurant is still building out its presence. However, the staff have years of food service experience, and early customer reviews indicate menu items are well prepared. They are open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., making them a dependable choice for an impromptu meal.
