A new restaurant for authentic street-style Chinese food opened over the weekend in Allston. StreetFood Revolution is the work of Alex Shan, who has a masters in project management from Northeastern and has spent two years working on developing this project. The restaurant opened Sunday, according to a post on Shan's Facebook page.

Shan opened StreetFood Revolution in the former Camino Real space at 48 Harvard Ave. He had previously launched a Kickstarter campaign for a restaurant called Garlex, which was meant to bring Chinese street food to Boston. He has since evolved that concept into its current iteration, StreetFood Revolution.

Shan's parents operate a sushi restaurant in Austria, and he spent time working in restaurant jobs around Boston to learn the local business as he prepared to launch his own. StreetFood has a Facebook page, where it has been posting updates of progress on the restaurant. According to Shan's post, the restaurant is open from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
