Kamp Fire opened up in August 2019 billing itself as the city’s first eatery focused on Cambodian cuisine — but the location downtown ended up to not be the right fit. After quickly closing in October, the owners are trying again with a relaunch.

The restaurant’s Instagram account posted a caption earlier this month teasing a new location, writing: “Downtown we took an L but right now, WE BOUNCE BACK!”

Today, Kamp Fire announced with a video on Instagram that it will reopen in Plano. The caption reads: “You asked. We listened. Safety. Seating. Free parking. BYOB. RELAUNCHING SOON IN PLANO.”

The wait is on for the official opening date. When Kamp Fire was located Downtown, partners Paul Try and Kevin Top served dishes like skewers of American wagyu beef marinated in Cambodian kroeung, a paste of spices and herbs, along with egg rolls, chicken wings, and nom kong, or traditional Cambodian doughnuts.
