Transformation Underway: PowerSoul Cafe’s New Sign and Remodeling Bring Fresh Vibes to Chinatown
In the heart of Chinatown, exciting developments are underway as PowerSoul Cafe, the upcoming 24-hour gluten-free restaurant chain, begins its transformation. The most visible sign of progress is the installation of the restaurant’s eye-catching sign, which serves as a beacon of anticipation for locals and visitors alike.
This captivating sign hints at the culinary wonders that will soon grace the neighborhood. PowerSoul Cafe is not merely a place to eat; it’s set to become a vibrant hub of healthy, convenient dining options that cater to a variety of dietary preferences.
Beyond the sign, the restaurant’s remodeling work has kicked off, transforming the space into a modern and inviting environment. The goal is to create a welcoming atmosphere where patrons can enjoy their meals comfortably, whether they choose to use the 24-hour drive-thru, make use of the convenient walk-up window, or utilize the practical pick-up lockers.
Sausage sticks enveloped in fluffy pancakes, an array of bagels in flavors like plain, cinnamon, raisin, or everything, paired with vegan or regular cream cheese, and delightful blueberry waffle balls—these gluten-free treats are poised for popularity at PowerSoul Cafe.
Alongside these savory delights, PowerSoul is set to dazzle taste buds with a menu of healthy fruit smoothies. From the antioxidant-rich acai berry to the rare and sought-after Butterfly Pea smoothies, featuring butterfly pea flower tea, these refreshing concoctions promise to be both delicious and a delightful way to reap the health benefits of these exotic ingredients.
Stay tuned for further updates as Powersoul Cafe’s opening date draws nearer. Chinatown is on the brink of a culinary revolution, and the new sign and ongoing remodeling work are just the beginning of what promises to be a remarkable addition to the local dining scene.

Last October, we shared the exciting news about the arrival of a new Korean street food restaurant in Chinatown. This delightful spot specialized in delectable Korean corn dogs, aboong, mini churro treats, binggrae flavored milk, Korean soda, cold brewed Lavazza coffee, and a whole lot more. However, with a heavy heart, we must inform you that Chu On This has bid farewell to its Chinatown location.
But, before you get too disheartened, here’s the silver lining: Chu On This is not disappearing entirely. Instead, they are relocating to the East side of the city and preparing to open a brand-new store on Maryland Parkway. So, while their presence in Chinatown may be missed, we can look forward to their return in a different part of the city.
As for the empty space they leave behind in the bustling Center at Spring Mountain, we can’t help but wonder what exciting venture might take over. Change is inevitable, and we eagerly await the new and delightful experiences that this prime location may soon offer. Stay tuned for updates on what’s next for this vibrant space!

Traffic Cones Celebrate Nearly Year-Long Stay at Decatur & Spring Mountain with Construction Kick-off
Well, folks, hold onto your hats because we’ve cracked the case of the never-ending traffic cones at Decatur and Spring Mountain! Drum-roll, please… they’re repaving! Yes, you read that right, since November 8th of last year, they’ve been orchestrating the world’s longest pre-construction meeting. But hey, who’s counting, right?
Now, cue the confetti and the celebratory kazoo because construction has finally, officially, commenced. Can you hear the collective “Yay” echoing through the city? No? Well, don’t worry; neither can we.
But, let’s not stop there. Spring Mountain Rd., you’re on notice! You might be in the running for the title of “Bumpiest, Pothole-Riddled Street in the City.” Maybe someday they’ll get around to giving you the makeover you so desperately deserve.
In the meantime, let’s keep our eyes on Decatur and Spring Mountain, where the traffic cones have graduated from being mere decorations to symbols of progress. Can we get a slow clap for construction, folks?

10 Second Yunnan Rice Noodles Grand Opening in Las Vegas Set for Mid-October
In an update on previously reported news, 10 Second Yunnan Rice Noodles has decided to pushed back its grand opening to mid-October. This exciting addition to the culinary scene, known as “10 Seconds Yunnan Rice Noodle,” is an extension of the well-regarded Chinese noodle chain, Shi Miao Dao.
Shi Miao Dao has made a significant mark in the culinary world, boasting an impressive network of over 750 establishments across China. Their success story has transcended borders, and they’ve been steadily expanding their presence in North America. With locations already established in New York, Atlanta, Texas, Charlotte, NC, Michigan, Salt Lake City, California, and Toronto, Las Vegas is now the latest city to join the list.
While the grand opening may have been pushed back a bit, the anticipation continues to build for the arrival of 10 Second Yunnan Rice Noodles in Las Vegas. Stay tuned for more updates as this culinary gem prepares to enrich the local dining landscape with its delicious offerings.
Farewell to Osaka Sunset: A New Chapter Awaits
It’s with a tinge of nostalgia that we bid adieu to Osaka Sunset, the Japanese fusion tapas & wine bar that brought a unique culinary experience to our neighborhood. You may have noticed that they initially reduced their hours to weekends only, leaving us with a sense of anticipation.
However, the situation has evolved, and Google now marks them as “temporarily closed.” It’s with mixed emotions that we confirm Osaka Sunset has permanently closed its doors. But the story doesn’t end here.
As we peek through the windows, it’s evident that some remodeling has already commenced within the space. Rumors have begun to circulate, hinting at the possibility of a rebirth—a Korean Style bar. While we await further details, we can’t help but feel excited about the potential for fresh flavors and experiences in the heart of our neighborhood.
Stay tuned for updates as the transformation unfolds. Change is on the horizon, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this vibrant spot. Goodbye, Osaka Sunset, and hello to new beginnings
