Thought that RIP V was getting long in the tooth, so I'll offer up this:
Titaya's is closed until further notice for "remodeling." I tried to peer into the window, and I didn't see any real remodeling occurring. Usually, that's not a great occurrence. I hope the best for them. Seems like they were busy with tons of customers. Anybody know what's up with dat?
saw a post on another site saying they planned to be open this fall or winter ( i think) and Eck (spin modern thai), Titaya's brother, was going to consult on an updated menu keeping about half of the old and half of the new. Also an overhaul of the space.
fall seems ambitious given the lack of work happening there.
Went there last night. Food was still awesome but the menu had changed drastically from the last time I was there. Apparently that was unrelated to closure. The signature dish was gone, The Full Spin. Food was still very good. Very sad they aren't staying open. The place had a 40 minute wait. I think they just want to move and can't stay open between moving. They've got too much of a good thing to just close. I think they need to move so they can get a good lunch business. My understanding that for a lot of restaurants lunch is critical.
Fuddruckers on S. Lamar is no longer with us. The only Fuddruckers (Fuddruckerss?) in the area now are Round Rock and Lakeline. Which is a shame, because their burgers, when ordered medium rare, were some of the only properly cooked-to-order burgers I've been able to get in town. (Cat Mountain Grill did it well, but they're RIP, too.)
There's a propensity elsewhere to cook to hockey puck stage and then a little more for good measure no matter how you ask for it. I'm not driving all the way up to hell and gone just for Fuddruckers, though.
I will say that I ordered a medium rare burger at Mighty Fine last time and got it medium well. It's a start!
Luby's is opening a Fuddruckers and a Luby's righyt next to each other on Slaughter between Southpark Meadows and First Street according to the local community paper.
The last time I went to that Fuddruckers on S. Lamar the burger was incredibly tasteless. Burgers are something I'd just rather do at home in the cast iron pan.
No great loss but Hai Ky on the drag has closed their doors. This must have literally happened yesterday as we went for lunch and the doors were still open but the tables were all turned upside down. A voice from the back of the room said "thanks for your business" and that's all she wrote.
We went to Teji's instead. If you still crave Hai Ky, not sure if the Westlake location is still open or not. I'm not craving it enough to check...
