The Oldest Chinese Restaurant In The US Is Right Here In Montana And It’s Delicious

When Montanans visit the Pekin Noodle Parlor in Butte, it’s typically not for the food. That doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it — in fact, the chow mein and chop suey are downright tasty. But more importantly, people come because they appreciate the history… the Pekin Noodle Parlor holds the title of the longest continuously operated Chinese restaurant in America.

It’s pretty great that we have a (tasty) piece of living history right here in Butte. Did you know this city was once called the Richest Hill on Earth?
