Ph’east, the Asian food hall slated to open at the Battery Atlanta later this fall, has announced another vendor as part of its lineup of eateries. The newest addition is Cantonese restaurant Fan T’Asia. The restaurant joins Snackboxe Bistro, Poke Burri, Lifting Noodles ramen, Kung Fu Tea and watering hole Taps at Ph’east among tenants at the 5,000 square-foot food hall.
Fan T’Asia is a concept from Muling Zhao and chef Man Fai Yan, the team behind southern Cantonese-focused Bo Bo Garden on Buford Highway in Doraville.
Their newest venture will feature classic Cantonese dishes such as sweet and sour chicken and shrimp, salt and pepper squid, spicy beef lo mein and shrimp fried rice. House specialties will include items like Hong Kong Curry and mapo tofu. Among starters, look for a variety of soups – wonton, hot and sour, and egg drop – as well as steamed and pan-fried dumplings, cold sesame noodles, Chinese fried wings and Chinese eggplant with garlic and ginger.
The restaurant’s name references the decorative fan as an element of Chinese culture as well as the Chinese character, pronounced "fàn" in pinyin, whose meaning translates to "food," "meal” or “rice.”
Although an exact opening date has not been announced, Ph’east is expected to open in late November or early December. The food hall will be located next to Wahlburgers on Legends Place and across from Aloft Hotel, Silverspot Cinema and Savi Provisions. It will feature indoor and outdoor seating for up to 200 people, as well as to-go counters and catering options.
