Dearest Noodleheads,

Over the past few weeks, we’ve teased you with Three Mysterious Clues hinting at our big secret.  Think you guessed right?  To view the answers to the riddles, along with our winners, visit here.

So, what’s the big secret???  As a loyal Noodlehead, I wanted you to be the the first one on the block to know.  I am excited to announce…

This summer, we are unleashing the dragon & opening a NEW restaurant concept…Doc Chey’s Dragon Bowl!  On July 4th, Doc Chey’s Emory Village will close for a transformation; in late July, it will re-open as Dragon Bowl!

Inspired by Doc Chey’s overwhelmingly popular Dragon Bowl chalkboard specials, I am confident you will love Dragon Bowl.

Still need to get your Doc Chey’s fix?  We understand.  You can still enjoy all your ol’ Noodle House favorites at Doc Chey’s Morningside located at 1424 N. Highland Avenue…only only 1.8 miles away!  The drive is so quick, you’ll be there in the time it takes to sing Karma Chameleon.  Doc Chey’s Grant Park at 563 Memorial Drive would be happy to serve you as well.

Peace Love Noodles,

That’s our mantra at Dragon Bowl and it’s based on the feedback we received from you:

Keep it Simple — Our goal is simple: to serve you delicious Asian-inspired bowls.  But simple does not always mean easy.  Every day, we cut cases of raw vegetables, hand-mix our rice grain blend, create our house-made sauces, grill our meats to order and brew fresh beverages…and we do it at a price that is affordable to you.  There is nothing easy about that!

Keep it Fresh — Our menu changes regularly to take advantage of locally grown & seasonal ingredients.  You will also see daily specials on our chalkboards; these dishes give our chef the opportunity to flex his creative muscles and stretch the boundaries of what a Dragon Bowl can be.  We made a bold decision and chose not to offer fountain drinks.  Why?  Because we believe that our organic iced teas and craft sodas made with real cane sugar (not corn syrup!) are not only better for you, but also taste better than sodas that come from a box.

Keep it Real — We aspire to be a restaurant that not only takes care of our guests by serving great food, but one that takes care of the community we serve AND the earth we share.  We feel it is worth the extra expense to serve our take-out food in 100% compostable packaging and to use china that is made with 35% renewable bamboo.  It is also why we actively support schools and charitable organizationsthat help make our community a better place.



We invite you to become a part of the Dragon’s history.

For an opportunity to attend one of our pre-opening parties, be sure to swipe your registered Karma Card at our Emory Village location before they close on July 4th.

Reservation space will be limited, so look for an email invitation with details in late June or early July.

In the meantime, be sure to enjoy Dragon Bowls as featured on the chalkboard at Doc Chey’s!
