Sakura Novi, described as Michigan’s first Asian-themed mixed use development launching sometime in 2024, has confirmed the latest food and drink tenants to its roster, two chains with national presence: Chubby Cattle, a traditional Chinese hot pot restaurant with locations across the United States, and Taiwanese tea house, Presotea. Chubby Cattle, founded by David Zhao and Haibin Yang, began serving traditional Mongolian-, Tibetan- and Chinese-inspired hot pot on conveyor belts from its first location in Las Vegas in 2016. Since then, the company has unveiled restaurants in Denver, Philadelphia, and Monterey Park, California. According to Eater Dallas, Yang hails from Inner Mongolia in China and developed the restaurant to create “the most authentic hot pot experience in the USA.” Presotea, founded in 2006, has more than 400 franchises across the global, including locations in Auburn Hills and Commerce Township and features a variety of milk, sweet, and cheese teas from Taiwan.
