What seems like a year ago I posted that a banner on the former Golden Phoenix in SF Chinatown announced "Coming Soon -- Penang Garden #3". There was some initial demolition work inside, but construction seemed to have stalled for months.
I walked by to check this morning, and it looks like construction is well under way and possibly near completion. The interesting thing is that what appears to be a food prep/service area is taking shape just inside the front door, suggesting a deli or takeaway facility (for hawker food?). I've never been to either of the other two PG's. Do they feature takeaway?
It'll be at 728 Washington St., just across from Portsmouth Square.
