Despite its mundane, industrial park frontage, Mountain Point Business Park on Spring Mountain is quickly turning into a major destination for pan-Asian dining fans, with three diverse concepts on the way.
Officially confirming an earlier rumor, Taiwan’s Chatime will makes its first expansion into Nevada, taking over a 2,015-square-foot space a few doors down from the very successful Hobak Korean BBQ on the building’s corner.
Created in 2003, Chatime has grown at rapid rate, operating more than 1,000 locations in 30 countries, including New York, Boston and Miami. Pushing for a fall debut, the restaurant chain wants to opem “multiple” Las Vegas locations in the future.
Specialists in bubble tea, with a promised Chinatown menu of more than 100 drinks, Chatime is famed for "special milk" choices like oolong and taro, "fruity juicy" options, smoothies and other specials, like "herbal jelly with fresh milk" and "matcha mousse."
Also headed to the business park, Ramen Hashi, currently building a compact 1,301-square-foot restaurant next door to Chatime, serving ramen lovers in a thin space that stretches back to the open-plan kitchen.
Soon to start construction, Cafe Gabi will sit two doors down from Hobak with a substantial 2,944-square-foot project that will act as a bakery and coffee shop. The very imaginative early designs show a space with amber lighting, indoor trees, vintage book case shelves, dark wood accents and a "greenhouse roasting room" for the coffee.
WG Constructors, whose previous work includes Hobak, Yui Edomae Sushi, Shang Artisan Noodle is working on Cafe Gabi and Ramen Hashi and is predicting both will be completed by the end of the year.
