New fast-food Asian restaurant opening on Gorham Street

Eat Xpress, located at 203 W. Gorham St., is planning to open by mid-January and serve traditional, home-cooked food with $12 meals that will have either two or three choices of a main dish along with rice or noodles, according to a report from the Wisconsin State Journal.

Owner James Min Jiang, who is also a co-owner of Global Market & Food Hall near East Towne Mall, said the restaurant will also serve Vietnamese pho and dim sum every day with items such as shumai and other dumplings, pancakes and bao, or steamed buns.

The 30-seat, counter-service restaurant is in the former location of Paul’s Pel’meni before it moved in May 2017.
