Ask Bungalower: What’s happening with the Kobe Steakhouse on Colonial?

CORRECTION: We stated in the original article that the owner was one Chau Nguyen. We have since learned that that information was incorrect. 

According to a report by Paul Brinkmann of the Orlando Sentinel, the owners of the long-promised Colonialtown Kobe Steakhouse have purchased another half-acre lot nearby.

Brinkmann reports that the owner, Chau Nguyen, purchased the lot which houses the closed Chevron gas station just next door to the former Barney’s Steak & Seafood [GMap].

The former gas station space will need to undergo brownfield cleanup and soil remediation before it can be developed.

According to Brinkmann’s article, the Colonialtown Kobe location has been delayed as the chain focuses on other new sites in the tourist corridor.

  1. Still seems like an odd location for a Kobe! That is essentially Little Vietnam still… But I guess the old one on Colonial did well before, so maybe I am wrong!

  2. I’ve seen it done both ways. When it’s a choo choo they scoot it across the table while it smokes. Volcano just sits there. Choo choo is far more technical.

  3. We apologize for the mistake! Paul Brinkmann reached out to us earlier today to inform us of the typo and we’ve corrected the post.
