Asian-inspired food hall The Spot is ready to start serving Taiwanese bubble teas and poke to Rockville diners this weekend.

The new spot (255 N Washington Street, Rockville, Md.) is projected to open at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 7 with five of its seven food stalls serving out of the gate. There’s Gong Cha (bubble tea); Poki DC (poke bowls); Cheers Cut (fried chicken and seafood); Mian (hand-pulled Mandarin noodles and freshly made dumplings); and Alpaca Dessert (a dessert bar with Thai ice creams and bubble waffles — a street food craze in Hong Kong).

Two more stalls are coming soon: The Spot Bar, serving classic cocktails and Asian-infused drinks with live music, and The Spot Grill with Asian barbecue on skewers and other finger foods. The Spot will feature 150 seats inside with 50 seats in the outdoor bar area, staying open daily until midnight.

To celebrate its first arrivals, the all-day eatery will run a 25-percent discount through Sunday, July 8. Find it across from Rockville Town Center in the Metropolitan Apartment Building.

Meanwhile, Rockville Pike is getting yet another Asian food hall soon, dubbed Pike Kitchen, which also features shared kitchen spaces for vendors.
