Chantilly’s Metrotech Drive adds new bakery, waits for egg-based eatery to hatch

One of Chantilly’s core shopping centers is getting a jolt of life with the arrival of a few new businesses, including a recently added bakery.

Notably, Shilla Bakery & Cafe opened a third location in the Sully Place Shopping Center late last month. The traditional Korean bakery first opened in 1999 and has since expanded to three locations, including a spot in Tysons. The bakery opened at 13938 Metrotech Drive on April 25.

EggHolic, a fast-casual restaurant that sells Indian street food, also plans to open sometime this year in the Lotte-anchored shopping center (13951 Metrotech Drive), which occupies 500,000 square feet at the Route 50 and Centreville Road intersection.

As its name suggests, most of its menu items involve eggs in one form or the other.

The business is rapidly expanding to other locations across the country, including Ontario, New Jersey and Maryland. It already has locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas.

The vegan restaurant serves items like cheese katori — two boiled eggs filled with spices and cheese — and specials like lack — shredded green bell pepper cooked with cheese and eggs. The complete menu is available online.

Cousins Bhagyesh and Lay Patel launched the business three years ago in Chicago. The business did not immediately return requests for comment on exactly when it is expected to open.
