Chinatown Houston: Chinatown’s best restaurant is opening a new location in Montrose
CultureMap has found out that Mala Sichuan, the three-and-a-half year old Houston restaurant widely considered to be the best restaurant in Asiatown, will take over the space formerly occupiedby Dua.
Owner Cori Xiong tells CultureMap that she and her husband Heng Chen began to look for a second location in either Katy, Sugar Land or inside the Loop. “Inside the Loop was always something we considered,” she says. “This opportunity popped up first. We’re going to grab it.”
While Xiong says they considered Sugar Land and Katy because of their growing Chinese populations and relative dearth of authentic, Asiatown-style Chinese restaurants, their track record appealing to.
