I haven't been this upset about a restaurant closing in a long time...if, in fact, ever. If this has been discussed on another thread, I apologize, though a quick search didn't yield anything.
I live in the south end so don't make it to that side of the river often, but whenever I do, I make sure to plan an East Asia trip, Their kung pao chicken was always one of my favorites, a deliciious sauce perfectly spiced with crunchy fresh vegetables, it was always consistently GOOD.
This week I found myself over there around lunchtime and called, only to have the number ring and ring and ring --no one picked up. Thought it was odd, but thought maybe, just maybe something was up with the phone. Then tonight...again....in the area....called and the same thing happened...endless ringing but no picking up and/or message. I was hoping against hope maybe they'd taken a summer vacation, but....drove by just to see...and.....there was a handwritten sign in the door...with a new name (which i don't remember) and something like "come back for our noodles or..." whatever..i honestly don't remember. I couldn't believe my worst suspicions had been confirmed. GONE.
Not sure if any of you guys know about this already (or know about the new place moving in) I can only assume the owners were simply done and sold the business --can't imagine business wasn't good as it was such a great spot for takeout. No idea, but feel free to shed some light if you know. Not that it'll make me feel any better...but still.
Figured only hounds would be able to truly commiserate w me...
