New Asian restaurant, Chinamoto, coming to South Broad

Broad Street is getting another dining destination – but on the northern end of our South Philly spectrum.

777 S. Broad St., near Catharine

The Insider reports that an Asian restaurant called Chinamoto will be moving in to the space just to the north of Tashan.

Chinamoto, an upbeat, moderately priced Asian fusion restaurant that’s been in the works for a year, is the first Philly project for Kelvin Lee Sin, best known for Buddha by Kenji Fusion in Kansas City, Mo.

Nothing says Asian fusion like Kansas City.

The site said that the menu will feature sushi, Thai and Chinese dishes, so, combined with Indian Tashan, 777 will be quite the culinary tour of Asia.

Hopefully, the two restaurants can feed off the traffic of each other in a way that enlivens that section of Broad. Tashan never seems to be that busy when we’ve passed by. Are we wrong about that though?

    Missouri is quite famous for its contributions to Chinese cuisine. Consider the St. Paul Sandwich, Springfield-style cashew chicken and the fact that Springfield holds the Guinness record for highest number of Chinese take-out restaurants per capita.
