Over on the Insider, they’re reporting that the Sang Kee Noodle Bowl in Newtown Square’s Edgemont Square Shopping Center (next to the movie theater) is closing after just a year.
Win and Sutida Somboonsong, who owned the last two restaurants in the space, are ending their licensing deal with Sang Kee’s Michael Chow after a year. On Aug. 29, they will close the Sang Kee to retool the kitchen. On Sept. 5, the plan goes, it will open as Azie Southeast, a version of the two Azies, in Media and Villanova.
Sad, right? But what’s worse is that this space is now taking on that existential feel of a doomed location since Sang Kee is only the most recent concept to die a fast death there. Sang Kee was preceded to the grave by Roux 3 and Parker’s Prime. But here’s hoping that Azie’s pan-Southeast-Asian menu (and beer list) will do the trick and reverse the growing curse.
