The Family Wash spot soon to be replaced by Asian restaurant

There was hope last year that East Nashville’s long-time staple, The Family Wash, would reopen their doors after being closed for upgrades.

The Nashville Post reports, Hawkers Asian Street Fare, a Florida-based Asian restaurant chain with a street food-based model, will be taking over The Family Wash spot.

According to the Hawkers website, they base their inspiration on the traditional street food served from hawker stalls in Southeast Asia. They focus on generations’ old recipes and have offerings such as dumplings, crisp pork belly, spicy curries, steamed buns, street tacos, and more.

Hawkers is slated to open on an undisclosed date this year. Read more at the Nashville Post.
