Amid rumors of Tokyo’s Pepper Lunch expanding to Las Vegas, a local rival to the cook-your-own meal concept is making its way to the southwest.
Sizzle Hut will move into the shuttered home of Pot Tea Social House, with the hope to be open by the end of January, or shortly after. The stand-alone building was also a former New Day Cafe, located close to the intersection of Windmill Lane and Rainbow Boulevard.
Created by the operators of Boba Hut in Spring Valley and the Japanese and Thai-inspired Curry Hut in the northwest, few details of the Sizzle Hut menu have been revealed, but it will include quality, sliced meats served on a hot plate and then cooked by each customer to their preferred temperature, anywhere between rare and well done.
Similar in style, Japanese “D-I-Y Teppan” chain Pepper Lunch has yet to be confirmed as a possible tenant at Chinatown's Shanghai Plaza later this year. The 25-year-old owner of more than 200 Asian outposts moved to Irvine, California, early in 2018, with a future Texas location also announced.
