Chinese food cooking again in Stewartville
Jacky Dong is extending the reach of his Chinese food beyond Rochester with a planned opening of a third restaurant.
Dong, who with his family owns Hunan Garden and Kingdom Buffet in Rochester, is gearing up to open New Hunan in Stewartville. He hopes to open the doors at 106 First St. by mid-December.“We have a lot of customers from Stewartville. They talked to me and asked me for it,” he says.
The Stewartville eatery will offer take-out and dine-in service from the same menu as Hunan Garden. He expects to have about four people on staff to start.
The deal was brokered by Darci Fenske of Paramark Real Estate.
The work in Stewartville follows a renovation project earlier this month in Rochester that added windows to the exterior wall of the 26-year-old Hunan Garden in the Northgate Shopping Center, 1120 Seventh St. N.W.
“Customers are coming in and saying it looks totally different. It is a lot brighter in there now,” Dong says.He plans to also replace the carpet and tile in that restaurant in the spring.
