Update: Momogoose Food Truck Is Opening Saté Asian Grill Near South Station

[Ed note: This article was updated on May 29, 2013 to reflect a name given to the place--as well as the fact that it is now open.]

A food truck that features Asian cuisine is going to be opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant in the heart of downtown Boston.

A message sent to us from their Twitter page indicates that Momogoose has signed a lease for a new cafe in the South Station area. The exact location of their restaurant is "secret" for now, and it is not yet known if they name of the place will also be Momogoose. Based on their food truck menu, there could be a variety of Korean, Thai, Indian, and Pakistani dishes at the new eatery.

[November 27 update: The Boston Magazine Chowder blog reports that the new restaurant from the Momogoose folks will have a different name and a different concept, focusing on Vietnamese street food such as Saigon noodle bowls, steamed rice vermicelli plates, crispy rolls, and Hanoi soups. There is still no word on an exact address or an opening date, so stay tuned for more updates.]

[May 20, 2013 update: It looks there is now an exact address for the new spot from the people behind Momogoose. The Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog mentions that a Licensing Board page from the City of Boston shows the address for the planned brick-and-mortar restaurant as being 89 South Street.]

[May 29, 2013 update: Eater Boston states that the new brick-and-mortar spot from Momogoose is now open, and that it is called Saté‚‚‚ Asian Grill.]

The Momogoose food truck can be found at such locations as International Place and Post Office Square in downtown Boston, the MIT/Kendall Square area in Cambridge, Copley Square in the Back Bay, Sullivan Square in Charlestown, and other spots in and around Boston.
