In surprising news, Adele Chapin at Eater reports that Maba Pan-Asian Diner has closed permanently.

In a Facebook post published late Sunday night, owner Wayne Nguyen wrote that while the restaurant "had a tremendous increase in support since our grand opening in December 2016, it saddens us to say that it was not enough to keep our doors open."

Maba, which earned positive reviews for pho fries, a pork belly taco, and lemongrass tilapia in the June 2017 issue of Houstonia, served often humorous twists on Vietnamese and Asian fusion dishes.
