A longtime favorite for Cambodian and Thai food may be going away, and it could be replaced by another restaurant that features Thai cuisine.
According to a licensing board hearing page within the City of Boston website, Wonder Spice Cafe in Jamaica Plain is looking to transfer its license to Sweet Rice, JP, which would go into the Centre Street space. It appears that the proposed eatery has a connection to a Charlestown spot that is also called Sweet Rice; the manager listed for the Jamaica Plain location is Tasanan Boranmool, who is indeed one of the people behind the two-year-old Main Street restaurant, according to an earlier article posted here. As noted before, the Charlestown restaurant features Thai food and sushi, though it is not yet known if the Jamaica Plain location of Sweet Rice would have a similar menu.
Wonder Spice Cafe has been featured by our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) as a place to go for a variety of Southeast Asian dishes, with the review being found at this link:
The address for Wonder Spice Cafe (and the proposed Sweet Rice) is 697 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain, MA, 02130.
