So close, but now looking at further delays on Spring Mountain Road, a 33,000-square-foot rival to the mega-hit Shanghai Plaza has been steadily constructing its casual collection of pan-Asian dining restaurants, plus a domestic import that specializes in Louisiana-style seafood.

Located at the corner of Spring Mountain and Duneville Street, across from Hobak Korean BBQ, Golden Spring Plaza has been busy mounting signage and finished the layout of its parking lot.

In the corner space and well advanced in adding interior fixtures, the counter-service Saigon Baguette intends to be open from 8 a.m. to 7.30 p.m. Thursday to Tuesday, featuring a Vietnamese deli-style menu and a focus on banh mi sandwiches.

Next door, the Imperial Sushi Seafood Buffet and sibling restaurant Imperial Express remain under construction. Current conditions surrounding COVID-19 and FDA regulations on how a buffet can operate suggest the buffet will be further delayed.

Shigotonin is well on its way to completing its dining room, creating a Japanese tapas and sake bar, upgraded with seating at a long, open kitchen.

Two doors down, Japan’s T-Swirl Crepe earned a loyal following on the East Coast and Canada for its thin and crispy crepes and still hopes to debut later this month, serving sweet and savory selections including matcha chocolate truffles, or chicken teriyaki daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Currently without a new sign, China-born Feng Cha plans a contemporary tea house menu for its seventh U.S. location, featuring creative desserts and house-made bread. Promised to be opening soon and hiring in recent months, the international brand operates more than 1,000 global stores.

And right on Spring Mountain Road, teams have been working hard finishing the first Nevada expansion for Pier 88 Boiling Seafood & Bar, a family-friendly casual restaurant known for its Louisiana-style Cajun seafood served in spice-infused bags. The restaurant is officially updated as coming soon.
