A new eatery focusing on northwestern Chinese cuisine has quietly opened along the Jersey City waterfront as Dunhuang Noodles is officially serving their hearty dishes.

Jersey Digs broke the news about the restaurant’s imminent arrival in Newport last summer. Dunhuang is now open inside The Beach property on the southwestern side of the complex.

The restaurant marks the company’s 12th location since opening their first outpost on 37th Avenue in Flushing back in 2015. Dunhuang has expanded significantly since then, operating in several prominent neighborhoods including the Upper West Side, Williamsburg, and Long Island City, also running an outpost inside Grand Central Terminal.

The restaurant’s unique fusion of Middle Eastern and Chinese cuisine is on full display in the Jersey City space, which is modern and well-lit thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Newport Green. Dunhuang’s menu includes a variety of small dishes like pita burgers with stewed pork, spicy cumin lamb and spicy beef to start.

Their signature offering is an aromatic beef noodle soup from Lanzhou with customizable noodle thickness varieties cooked to order. Entrees at the restaurant include a prime lamb braised with green and red peppers and a Big Plate Chicken dish, which is slow braised Xin Jiang style with potatoes and peppers.

Dunhuang Noodles is now open from 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily at 172 River Drive and can be followed on Instagram at the handle @dunhuangfood.
