Fans of Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, take note: Shreveport City Councilman Jeff Everson has informed me that a restaurant we both love has re-opened in Shreveport. Goldenland Superior, formerly located at 7460 Youree Drive in Shreveport, has re-opened on the ground floor of Motor Hotel, located at 729 Jordan Street in Shreveport’s Highland neighborhood. Hours are 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and the new phone number is (318) 216-3902. Councilman Everson says that the menu has been slimmed down for the sake of speeding up service times, which will be a welcome improvement to long-time fans of the mom-and-pop operation. Hopefully, outstanding menu items like the green curry chicken and coconut chicken noodle soup have survived the menu re-design.
As always, I’m told that the dining room is pretty bare. Before they closed the Youree Drive location, I’d seriously considered breaking into the place one night and decorating. But, like so many great little restaurants in Shreveport-Bossier, what’s on the plate compensates for what’s not on the walls.
My wife and I have made some great memories at Goldenland Superior, and I’m thrilled to see it return. If you try it out, drop me a line and let me know what you think: cjay at sbctb dot org.
