The new space, at 6360 North Point Parkway, is the former home of Fuddruckers. Jane Ewe, whose family owns both Food Terminal and Sweet Hut Bakery, says once they get through the permitting process and finish construction, the restaurant should be open around January 2022.

Food Terminal specializes in Malaysian-style food, with dishes ranging from Chinese noodles and stir fries, to Indian roti, to barbecue pork rice and beyond. “Malaysia is such an ethnically diverse country,” says Ewe, whose family is Chinese Malaysian. “We have our own unique style of cooking that combines all the ethnicities and cultures that make up Malaysia. We have a combination of Chinese, Malaysian, and Indian recipes, each with their own unique ingredients, like strong Indian spices and Chinese marinades, and some ingredients shared across cultures, like pork belly.”

Ewe’s Mother, Amy Wong, is executive chef at Food Terminal. The menu, Ewe says, is meant to reflect a typical food court in Malaysia, where each cuisine gets its own individual stall. But rather than offering counter service in a fast-casual setting, Food Terminal is a full service restaurant. Its newest location will come complete with a patio and a full bar.

“It’s a super casual environment,” says Ewe. “There’s something here for everybody.”

With more than one hundred items on the menu, the only issue you may run into at Food Terminal is your own inability to make an executive decision. But the truth is, you can’t really go wrong. We suggest heading to the new Alpharetta location with a big group, so you can have a little taste of everything.
