Koby had mentioned his search for a new location, since his place gets pretty swamped. On Sunday, he told me he had some big news this week. Today when I dropped by for lunch he told me that he has signed a lease, and will open Sab E Lee 2. His current target date for opening is November 1, 2009
The location will be in Santee:
9159 Mission Gorge Road
Santee, CA 92071
In the former "Thai Style Restaurant" location.
Not to worry, the original Sab E Lee will remain open, with the current Chef and menu.
The new restaurant will feature most of the current menu's Issan-style dishes, but will also add on most of the "Thai" standards. Koby's friend, who he told me was a chef at a 4-star hotel in Bangkok will be handling the kitchen chores.
