Sakhuu to Open Takeout and Delivery

If you live anywhere near Lemmon Avenue and the tollway, this blog post is about to seriously brighten your life. Kyla Phomsavana, co-owner and chef of Sakhuu in East Dallas is about to open up a second location on the other side of town.

Instead of traditional table service, the new restaurant will offer only takeout and delivery. Considering how dismal delivery options in Dallas can be, this is a huge step forward for those of you who like to eat on your couch.

Look for the new location to open at 5200 Lemon Ave. sometime later in June. If you've dined at the first restaurant, you can expect the same dishes including pad Thai and those ridiculous stuffed chicken wings I wrote so much about in my review of the restaurant.

There's also plenty of light items on their menu. I'm not sure some of the stir fried dishes classify as health food, but they're a heck of a lot better for you than standard Chinese delivery. And other dishes like the papaya salad and spring rolls really are light and delicious.

A soft opening is expected around June 15, with a grand opening later in the month.
