The Japanese street food stall Yaki-Ya has closed inside Parlor, the Crossroads food hall, as of the end of October. Today comes word that a replacement is on the way: Mudbugs, a concept from Louisiana native Chris Jones. The new stall will serve five different po’boys, plus sides including gumbo, jambalaya, fried okra, red beans and rice, and more. Mudbugs will open in December.

Yaki-Ya is the second restaurant to cycle out of Parlor this year. The slider purveyor Buns Up replaced the Scandinavian fare at Vildhast back in the spring.
