Instead, the spokesperson says, Tai Ke Shabu Shabu will feature its namesake dish, individual hot pots in which ingredients are cooked at the table in a beef, lamb or other broth.
The new restaurant will also offer Taiwanese barbecue as well as the original Tai Ke menu.
Tai Ke Shabu Shabu aims to open by mid-November, the spokesperson says.
The original Tai Ke opened in 2015 at 8604 Olive Boulevard. Among its accolades, the restaurant is a 5-time STL 100 honoree.
