Welcome back to Eater News, a semi-regular round-up of mini news bites. Have info to share? Email intel to seattle@eater.com.

  • Capitol Hill bar Nacho Borracho and resident taco shop Neon Taco security called police over the weekend to help them remove Joey Gibson, leader of notorious far-right group Patriot Prayer, whose rallies have led to violence, after he refused to leave the bar. Patriot Prayer supporters then flooded Neon Taco’s Yelp page with negative reviews, most of which have since been removed.
  • Taiwanese fruit tea shop Yi Fang is headed to the Ave in the U District. There’s only one other location in the U.S., in Berkeley, and another in Vancouver, British Columbia. There’s no opening timeline beyond “coming soon.”
  • Excellent local Vietnamese chain Green Leaf will end service at its Belltown restaurant soon, as the building it’s in is being developed as a 16-story residential tower.
  • A burger restaurant called Katsuzilla is opening in the Chinatown-International District’s Uwajimaya food court. Despite the similarity in names and admiration for Godzilla, Hannah Ha, owner of two Katsu Burger locations, says Katsuzilla isn’t related to Katsu Burger. According to the website, Katsuzilla should open this winter, showcasing katsu sandwiches, which feature panko-breaded and fried cuts of meat.
  • An establishment called Milkie Milkie is opening next to Oasis Tea Zone in the Chinatown-International District. There’s a restaurant of the same name in Edmonds, so if these two are related, diners can expect artful Korean dessert bowls layered with rice cakes, shaved ice, fruit, and sauces.
