Thanks to Eric for sending. Any fans of “Sóc Trăng” style cuisine?
Another reader writes:
“This house has been abandoned for at least three years and all of sudden in the last 2 months a lot of work has been done. I am not 100% sure, but I could’ve sworn I saw a couple people leave the house one evening with “Pho Viet” shirts. Now today this sign popped up on the house. I hope the Pho Viet crew (3513 14th Street, NW) are opening a new restaurant.”
“Along with her mother, Nguyen is opening a second restaurant in the area early next year, focusing on bun rieu, a vermicelli soup popular throughout southern Vietnam. The restaurant is an homage to the region where Nguyen’s love of cooking was born — and the woman who taught her about food.”
Updates when they get closer to opening. STAY TUNED.

Thanks to Laura for sending this great news about the former Ethiopian bodega spot across the street from the Petworth metro. The very early word on Yelp for Pho Viet USA is very very good:
“This new place is wonderful! Right off the metro so it’s in a great spot. Lee (who served us) is so friendly and awesome. He treated us to some of the egg roles and they were amazing. The Pho was pretty good too. Yummy jasmine tea! We’ll be eating here again!! Great addition to our neighborhood.”

The liquor license placard for Ben Tre says:
“A neighborhood restaurant serving Vietnamese cuisine. Seating capacity of 20 inside. Total Occupancy Load of 20. Sidewalk Café with 6 seats.”
Ben Tre opened up in the former Yamas (and various shawarma spots) space back in August. Props on proper sign! Any fans of the pho?

A reader reports:
“I stopped by Vietnamese Chelsea at Park Rd and 14th St in Columbia Heights this weekend. They have a 20% off promotion to celebrate their grand opening. The fried spring rolls were fatter than Pho 14 and the pho beef broth was more gingery. Everything was very good. Really nice staff, too. I recommend giving it a try.”
Check out the menu after the jump. (more…)
