Fork Cafe in the Castro quietly closed last week, and today they are softly reopen as Slurp (469 Castro Street), a non-denominational noodle bar. It appears to be a quick concept shuffle by the existing owners, as Castro Bubble reports, and a group of photos just went up on Facebook showing dishes like ramen, pork belly steam buns, and papaya salad.

They haven't even announced the change on the Fork Cafe website yet, and they had a rather large fork that needed to be removed from the awning outside, which we can now see is gone.

The full Slurp menu is here, including things like "kisu me" udon noodles in dashi broth, wok-fried Thai rice noodles, pho, and tamarind chicken wings. Also, there look to be plenty of vegetarian options.

Slurp is open for lunch and dinner, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. And it looks like they've got an opening special: free beer with any entree.

Slurp - 469 Castro Street - Now open, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and until 11 p.m. on weekends.
