[OPENING ALERT] Food Terminal to Arrive on the Westside This Weekend

The Westside location of Food Terminal is finally opening!  Restaurant co-owners Amy Wong and Howie Ewe plan to celebrate the grand opening of their popular Malaysian restaurant this coming Friday and Saturday, November 8 and 9.  The original Food Terminal debuted March 2017 along Buford Highway in Chamblee.  
The new outpost, located at 1000 Marietta Street in The Brickworks development, replaces The Local Pizzaiolo, which closed this past February after a little less than a year in business.  The 2,700 square foot restaurant has been a number of things over the past few years including Bellwoods Social House before the pizza shop, and Swit Bakery & Cafe before that.   

Food Terminal, the latest concept from the team that launched both Top Spice and Sweet Hut, seems best suited to find success in the space.  The current Food Terminal on Buford Highway has been very well received by nearby residents and foodies alike and its cuisine -,Malaysian,- is not something readily found on the Westside.  The new Food Terminal will be slightly smaller than the current Buford Highway outpost.    

The restaurant's Malaysian fare which is a mix of Chinese, Indian, Singaporean, and Thai flavors, features such items as "Cheese N' Cheese": tomato-braised rice, egg, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, smoked bacon, grilled spam, fresh corn, red onion, fried shallots, spring onions, and bell peppers over hot cast iron and "Kari Chicken Noodle Soup" with "curry noodle base, infused with coconut milk, served in a bed of Food Terminal’s signature thin noodle, chicken thigh, fish cake, fried shallot, and hard-boiled egg."  

To celebrate the restaurant's opening, customers on the November 8 and 9 will receive one free appetizer [fried wontons or samosa] when they check in or tag the restaurant on social media.  

Are you excited for the opening of Food Terminal in West Midtown?  Have you been to the original Food Terminal in Chamblee?  What is your favorite ethnic food?

Food Terminal will be a big success here - IF and only if - they are as efficient as Buford Hwy location.
