‘Zing’s Awesome Rice’ Closes Hell Square Snack Spot
Zing’s Awesome Rice hasn’t been open of late. Looks like its fifteen-month reign in Hell Square just concluded.
Indeed, all signs point to a permanent shutter – consecutive days of darkness, Yelp saying it’s closed, website disconnected, and no updates to social media. Most telling, however, is the disconnected phone line.
Proprietor Zing Bai opened Zing’s Awesome Rice at 122 Ludlow Street in November 2015, and was successor to the failed Via Tribunali. The cramped takeout joint – it only had two tables – attracted plenty of press out of the gate, nabbing treatment from blogs and the mainstream alike. The early hype apparently couldn’t sustain the business.
