Katy-based Malaysian restaurant Phat Eatery announced it will be expanding to a second location in the Grogans Mill retail center in early 2023.

According to a news release, the new location will more than double the original location's footprint at 7,800 square feet, and favorites including flaky roti canai, satay skewers, Kerabu prawn, curry laksa, sizzling egg tofu, Malaysian curry chicken and beef rendang, along with stir-fried noodles, specialty fried rice, and a range of seafood and vegetable dishes will come to The Woodlands.

"I’ve been thinking about expanding to The Woodlands for a while,” chef and owner Alex Au-Yeung said in the release. “It’s not easy to find good real estate in The Woodlands, but we've found the perfect spot with room to do the menu I've always wanted.”

The Woodlands location will also feature Chinese-style barbecue when it opens. www.phateatery.com
