Bubbling with anticipation: Asian Buffet gets soda fountains

STERLING – I have spotted movement at the Asian Buffet.

This morning, a van and truck, both with Coca-Cola logos, and a white pickup were parked at the restaurant-to-be at 3106 E. Lincolnway.

A man who identified himself as a Coca-Cola employee but declined to give his name said the restaurant was getting two soda fountain machines. He didn't know when it will open.

I asked owner Mike Wei earlier this month when he plans to open, and he said "sometime this year." Which he said in 2011, and in 2012. The restaurant originally was expected to open in April 2010.

Wei's also now dealing with the aftermath of Dec. 12 fire that closed his Rock Falls restaurant, First Wok, at 1110 First Ave. He declined recently to say when it might reopen.

Stay tuned.
