Sweet Octopus now open for ramen, Thai food, bubble tea and more in Duluth

If you love Asian food, there’s a new one-stop shop for you in Duluth.

Multi-concept project Sweet Octopus opened today in mixed-use development Parsons Alley. 

Paul Yuwachit, the owner of Thai and Sushi EAV in East Atlanta, initially announced details on the two-story project in June 2019.

In addition to Thai food from Yuwachit, the first floor will also offer poke bowls and burritos from Poke Burri and ramen from Lifting Noodles, both concepts owned by Seven Chan and Ken Yu. The owners of KSP Restaurant Group, Chan and Yu opened Poke Burri and Lifting Noodles in the Global Grub Collective in East Atlanta Village several years ago, and have added several locations since, both in metro Atlanta and in other states.

On the second floor, family-owned Asian empanada bar Emapanada House will join a bubble tea bar. 

The spot will start serving cocktails once it obtains its liquor license. 

Chan and Yu are also currently working on the Asian-focused food hall Ph’east, which is set to open in the next few weeks in The Battery at SunTrust Park. The pair will also open a Poke Burri location in The Collective at Coda at Tech Square in the coming weeks.

Thai and Sushi EAV opened in East Atlanta Village in 2001. 

Sweet Octopus joins several other dining destinations in the Parsons Alley development including Korean steakhouse NoonaGood Word Brewing & Public House, Dreamland Bar-B-Que and O4W Pizza.

Chan said Sweet Octopus’ opening hours are 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m Tuesday-Sunday.
