A new Chinese restaurant named Pia Shang Sichuan Kitchen is now under construction in the former Anna’s Used Furniture & Collectibles at 612 Congress Street opposite the State Theater. Owners Qi Shen and Qiong Fang Tan have applied for a full liquor license. Pia Shang will occupy 2 floors of the building with the kitchen and a second dining room on the 2nd floor.
The draft menu (page 51) supplied with the liquor license application includes items such as Pork in Lychee Sauce with Crispy Rice, and Boiled Fish Slices in Fiery Sauce.
The owners hope to open the restaurant this Fall.
See the PFM Under Construction page for list of other restaurants currently under development.

If the owners read: If its not on your menu already, please include 夫妻肺片. Don’t underestimate us, we love tongue, tripe, etc. We are excited and hungry!
There’s an “Authentic Mexican” place going in where Wild Willy’s was in South Portland. I didn’t catch the actual name. Former Pizza Hut and Weathervane in the Mall parking lot remain empty.
Menu contains some authentic Sichuan dishes. Let us hope they are real and not the crap the other chinese restaurants in Portland offer.
