A bunch of locally-owned Asian food stalls coming to Strip District's Terminal Building.


A group of locally-owned Asian food stalls is coming to the Strip District's Terminal Building, Hal B. Klein writes in Pittsburgh Magazine.
McCaffery Pittsburgh has reached a lease agreement with Mike Chen, co-owner of Everyday Noodles in Squirrel Hill, and Alex Tang, co-owner of Mola in East Liberty, to curate and oversee the development of a food hall centered around Asian restaurants.

“Our focus is to offer real representations of what you would find in Asia right now,” says Tang.

The food hall, which doesn’t yet have a name, will feature seven stalls surrounding a large bar in The Terminal Building in the Strip District. As of now, Tang plans to operate an offshoot of Mola and Chen, a version of Everyday Noodles.

Established Pittsburgh businesses will run the remaining five stalls: Korean Garden, Sumi Bakery, Silk Elephant and Golden Palace (serving sui mei; Cantonese roasted meat). A boba tea stand run by the owners of Many More Asian Market will round out the food hall.

"We Learn: Korean Learning Circle" continues online and in-person at Carnegie Library Oakland, Saturdays through April (at least).
