Not sure when this happened. Get your Malaysian fix in Cambridge.

    At least a year ago:

      Now that is reason to be thankful!

      Great news and my favorites are on the menu.


      And, it is a great location for their former customers. It's just about a mile from the old spot.

        I went to Royal East Wednesday night after spotting this message on the board. I talked with one of the former owners of Island Hopper (Karen). She was so warm and welcoming. And, they made my favorite dish for me, Kapitan Chicken, even though it is not on the menu.

          When Island Hopper was in Back Bay, I used to get the Mee Goreng for lunch all the time.
