Keep Westword Free

Where art thou, Billy Lam?

Okay, so we're usually not in the market of hunting down Denver's most wanted, but after our post yesterday announcing Pho Havana's takeover of Chef's Noodle House, an Asian joint previously run by Billy Lam, a killer-genius chef especially when it comes to noodles, we're now wondering what the hell became of Billy. As are a few commenters, like Buy Curious, who wrote, "Where, o where, has our little Lam gone?"

Good question, and one that we're hoping one of you gumshoes can answer.

We haven't seen Billy in a while, not since February -- hell, even longer -- but we don't think he's changed too much since that bi-speckled face in the above photo was snapped.

If you can tell us where Billy is, we guarantee you'll get a reward for your sleuthing. Maybe a DINR deck, maybe drinks or dinner with the Cafe Society clan, maybe your own set of monogrammed chopsticks.

Just help us find Billy.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
