A new Taiwanese restaurant is coming to Holly: Sweet Chive is coming to 2515 East Cesar Chavez Street sometime in mid-July.

On Sweet Chive’s northern Chinese and Taiwanese menu will be homemade dumplings, as well as noodle and rice bowls, seasonal vegetables, and teas. There will be vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free dishes too. The weekends will feature a prix fixe brunch. For drinks, there will be teas and boozier options: beer, wine, and sake (Alcohol might not be available when the restaurant opens; if that happens, Sweet Chive will encourage people to BYOB with a small fee.)

Sweet Chive is from Heather Pai Yu and her mother Phoenix, who has owned and worked in various Chinese-American restaurants in Austin for the past 30 years. With this restaurant, they’re aiming to serve food that they eat at home.

Sweet Chive’s tables and bars are designed by Old Crow Custom Works’ Adam Young. The space will feature a mural from Blue Dozen Collective’s Briks and Killah Baskone.
