As we wrote in our 10-in-One series in August, Freighthouse Square restaurants are in a constant state of flux. Restaurants there come and go at a faster pace than even the rest of the ever changing restaurant industry. Even if your visits are a single month apart, you may find two or three new restaurants, or an equal number of closed restaurants.

Our most recent Freighthouse find this week is Little India Express. The small Indian restauarant replaces M and J’s Lumpia, which served Filipino food. (Also gone are Cyber Pasta, which specialized in inexpensive pasta and espresso; and Bochino’s Fine Sausage, the hot dog stand near Rosie’s Asian BBQ. No word on what will fill those now vacant spaces).
