    The old House of Dragon location, on Lancaster, is now Yan Yan Chinese Cuisine. The Players Sports Bar is now in the old Bunker venue on Royvonne. The Dog House has opened on River RD N in Keizer. Fresh Elements (SE Asian fusion) is in the old Vietnam Restaurant location on Center.

    Hi CB, Vietnam Restaurant says on Facebook that their new name is Noodles and More, like KandN wrote up above. Does the restaurant have Fresh Elements posted on a sign?

    Hello Anon. On my most recent visit (2/2/13), I had a nice conversation with Mr. Dey Tu who, along with Mrs. Tu, are the new owners of this restaurant. (He's a very interesting fellow, by the way) He shared their story with me as well as his reasoning for the naming of their business and even showed me a rendition of the new logo. I got the impression that this is a restaurant very much in mid-transition. Perhaps they've changed their minds and decided to go with Noodles and More. I guess we'll know when the sign goes up. Thanks for keepin' me honest!

    Anyone know why Teriyaki House closed?

    KandN said...

    My guess is lack of business or retirement, but it's just a guess.

    Did the Arctic Circle Drive-in on Capitol St close down. It looked dark and deserted all week as I passed by on my way home from work. Many fond memories of Acey-Greasy (what we called it as kids) and their yummy fry sauce!

    I just called. No answer, but the phone hasn't been disconnected. Perhaps they're looking for someone new to take it over?

    KandN said...

    Just heard back, Arctic Circle is closed.

    Why did they close I was there the night before and they didn't have anything or say anything about closing. Next day they are closed for good ?

    Are you referring to the closing of Teriyaki House or Arctic Circle?
