Fledgling noodle bar expands
An enterprise which is less than a year old is already expanding in the city.
Gong Fu Noodle Bar in Kingsmead Square is opening a new bar in Lower Borough Walls next month dedicated to tea.
The Gong Fu Tea Express is taking over the old Bath Model Shop, which closed in February.
The tea bar is the latest venture for friends Sally Sun, Justin Ren and Eddie Zhang, who opened their noodle bar in January.

Sally said: "The new shop is going to have a drinks bar, fresh tea and in the future going to have Chinese loose teas and herbal teas to buy.
"We will also teach people how to make real Chinese tea.
"With the climate in England, people like to have tea."
The new drinks bar will serve traditional green tea, as well as the new popular bubble tea, which is a mix of tea, milk, sugar, and black tapioca balls. The bar will also serve fried ice cream and Chinese moon cake.
Gong Fu Tea Express is due to open at the end of October.
Another empty shop on Lower Borough Walls set to be filled next month is the former Bath Pet Centre unit.
The old pet shop is being transformed into a contemporary arts space called 44AD, which will host art shows and workshops.
The arts space will open on October 24 with an exhibition called 'ten plus one' which will feature work from all of the 44AD studio artists and include paintings, illustrations, video art and installations.
Macabseil, which specialises in the use of industrial rope access techniques, has been helping to refurbish the unit by cleaning the high rise windows, installing pigeon wire to keep birds at bay and removing the old signs from the premises.
