Last month downtown Walnut Creek had NO Burmese restaurants and by next month there will be two of them as Burma 2 is expected to open next month in May where Siam Fine Thai used to be. The other Burmese restaurant, Burma Unique, opened just this week. Check out their website here. However, I wonder what’s going on in front of the restaurant as that looks like a pretty big hole down there.
The boba/poke restaurant T4 & Poke which opened a couple of years ago in downtown Walnut Creek is switching things up as they get rid of the poke and will be known as Amausaan Uji Matcha / Japanese Cuisine & Lounge. The boba drinks will remain as they offer Japanese desserts such as Matcha Mille Crepe. Check out their menu here. As a fan of Japanese desserts I look forward to trying this place out!
The “high-end clothing and lifestyle boutique” Luck that opened last December at Lafayette Forge is relocating to the Lafayette Clocktower where Radio Shack used to be. Check out the clothing, shoes, jewelry and lifestyle brands they carry here. They are scheduled to open in their new spot by the end of May.
Thanks to a reader for pointing out that there was a kitchen/attic fire at the Lafayette restaurant Postino last night. When I dropped by to check it out today the entire area smelled incredibly smoky.
Con Fire remains on scene of restaurant fire in Lafayette tonight. Currently in overhaul, which is expected to last several hours. Fire not suspicious and was limited to kitchen and attic areas, with extensive smoke & water damage throughout. Mt. Diablo open in both directions.
Thanks to a reader for sending word that Shanghai-based boba cafe Happy Lemon is opening in a new spot at College Park Center (Contra Costa Blvd. & Gold Club Rd.) in Pleasant Hill. Check out their drinks menu here.

GamedayVR, a virtual reality arcade that opened at the end of 2017 in downtown Walnut Creek has relocated temporarily to Mike Murphy Baseball, a batting cage center located directly across from the future Shadelands SportsMall in Walnut Creek. According to an employee they will be relocating to the SportsMall and will offer a baseball VR experience in addition to their usual VR games. Stay tuned…
Although they currently only have room for a few VR areas, I did spot a temporary PC gaming section for a party.
Last summer we learned that the SoCal-based restaurant chain Yard House would be coming to the Veranda shopping center in Concord and they are now set to open in two weeks on April 29th. Check out their menu here. There will be, “over 100 American-style dishes made from scratch daily, and the world’s largest selection of draft beer with 130 taps”.
