We are excited to announce that, if all goes according to plan, Mei Wei will be officially opening at Twickenham Square next Wednesday, May 13th!
Run by Tom Wang and his wife Ann, this is the second location for Mei Wei in Huntsville and the couple couldn’t be more excited.
“We’ve been looking for a space downtown for two or three years, and there was just nothing available. But then we heard about the Publix development,” said Tom. “It’s Downtown, and situated near the Hospital so you’re next to one of the biggest employers in Huntsville. It’s a great place to open a business.”
Slightly smaller than their original location on University, which they opened in 2009, Tom has spent a lot of time and energy crafting a new urban look for the restaurant that will fit its downtown location.
“The look is going to be very different, more welcoming with lighter colors, less black, and very airy,” said Tom.
Tom grew up in Huntsville and helped his family’s restaurants before moving out of town. “My parents were always in the restaurant business,” Tom said. “I managed some of my parents restaurants for a little while. Then we opened something in Birmingham and from there it just took off.” After several years of success in Birmingham, Tom was looking to be close to his parents, thus Mei Wei in Huntsville was born.
The Mei Wei menu, which will feature the same items as the original location, will focus on quality, quick-service asian fare with a twist.
“We try not to be the typical Chinese restaurant. We try to customize every meal to each customer’s desire. We have a gluten free menu, choice of protein, a lot of vegetarian dishes, there’s a bit of everything for everybody I think,” commented Tom.
Tom’s favorite item on the menu?
“The thai fried rice, I like spicy food in general, so I like that. It’s what I eat here the most.”
Make sure to stop by and support Mei Wei’s newest location at Twickenham Square starting next Wednesday, May 13th!
