Bigfoot 2012 Sightings?

Whole Foods @Gateway had a couple sixers on 2/13. Bottles & bottle caps, huh? :)

Anybody know whether Chen Z has opened yet? I keep thinking about it, and hoping....

New Hot Pot Place on Anderson

I did a personal reconnaissance mission today & stopped at Chen Z. It's right next to Chipolte in strip near Alamo Drafthouse on Anderson Lane. It is NOT open for business yet.

I noticed Chen Z sign on my way to the violin shop, so decided to stop on way back. The door was open and there were a bunch of people sitting inside. I asked an Asian woman (not Chen's wife) who approached me whether they were open yet. She said they were not, and when I asked whether they had a firm opening date, she said no firm date but opening "in a few weeks."

The people inside appeared to be wait staff being trained...training involved wine, because there were several wine bottles out and some guy standing up talking, while holding a glass of wine. Chen was behind back counter at far end of restaurant from door.

The place looks nice -- definitely many, many notches above the hole-in-the-wall location of Chen's Noodle House on 183/Spicewood Springs. Can't wait 'til it opens!

Would like to try Southern Hospitality, though it's a few mins. south on 183. Is it true they're only open from 8A-3P Mon.-Fri.? If so, I can forget about going there with kids except when school's out.

VERY bummed out about the closing of NW Hoover's location. Yeah, the interior was totally retro and not in a good way, but I loved me the food and people. The waitress who told me about the imminent closing said the landlord jacked up the rent, and revenue at that location didn't justify staying open. So now the building will sit empty for possibly years?!

My family and I had been going to the NW Hoover's since it opened, as we live less than 15 mins. away. Really gonna miss it!

Just found out about the new place Chen is opening. Was eating at the original hole-in-the-wall place at 183/Spicewood Springs tonight. Noticed that the Mrs. was the only familiar face in the kitchen, and asked her where Chen was. She told me about the new restaurant and said he's there (working to get it open, I think...her English is better than my Chinese).

The new place will be called Chen Z, located at 2700 W. Anderson. Phone 336-8888. The biz card she gave me says "Hot Pot + Noodle Bar" below the Chen Z name.
