Pho Ca Dao Announces Plans To Reopen All Locations For Dine-In Visitors
Pho Ca Dao Vietnamese Kitchen, the latest venture from the Huynh Family, who own and operate seven locations across San Diego County, is excited to announce that they will welcome dine-in customers on June 1st, while continuing to keep a strong emphasis on takeout and their recently launched catering business.
The restaurant, which pivoted to a takeout and delivery format following stay at home orders,
was scheduled to have its grand opening in late March. Additionally, the restaurant group will
reopen all its locations for dine-in. Mira Mesa, Poway and Rancho Bernardo will reopen on June 1 with additional outdoor patio seating, while Santee, East County and Chula Vista will open shortly thereafter.
Vietnam in the heart of Mission Valley
Located in the heart of Mission Valley, their kitchen offers high-quality, Vietnamese cuisine. This location features an expanded menu from their other restaurants and is the only one to offer a full bar program, with a variety of specialty cocktails, a Pho Ca Dao beer, and wine.
The restaurant teamed up with Gensler to design a space that incorporates elements of traditional Vietnamese culture and decor into the restaurant. From room-length murals of rice fields in Vietnam, to statues of The Three Sisters, and traditional handmade Vietnamese furniture, the place is designed to pay homage to the Huynh family’s home town in Vietnam.
Dine safely and comfortably
In anticipation of opening, the restaurant’s team has been carefully following CDC, Public
Health, and Cal/OSHA guidelines and putting protocols in place to ensure the restaurant is
prepared to serve guests in a safe and comfortable manner.
“There’s nothing we take more seriously than the safety and well-being of our guests and staff,” said Duke Huynh, partner and operator of Pho Ca Dao Restaurants. “As restaurants return to inperson dining, we’ve implemented a plan that includes countless measures to ensure our guests and our team feel safe and comfortable.”
“We will be limiting our capacity to 50%, offering easy curbside pickup, enhancing cleaning protocols and staff training, adding physical distancing measures, and opening our patio for dining. It is our hope that these precautions, coupled with our customers’ cooperation with CDC guidelines, will allow us to open our doors for a safe and pleasant dining experience.”
Featuring classic and unique menu
The menu features classic and specialty Pho, fried rice, egg roll, spring roll, wing, and bun options. They also boasts regional specialties, house dishes, and a selection of appetizers and vegetarian options.
Items unique to this location’s menu include: the Oxtail Pho with braised oxtail and Vietnamese meatballs, Pineapple Salmon Broken Rice with tamarind, pineapple, roasted tomatoes and roasted garlic rice and Lemongrass Shaken Beef served with a choice of Vietnamese bread or roasted garlic rice.
Playful cocktail names and Vietnamese twists reinforce the restaurant’s devotion to honoring
Vietnamese culture. Standouts include the My Tho Smash – named after the Huynh family’s
hometown – is made with gin, elderflower liqueur, basil, cucumber, lemon, and cane sugar, the Rising Dragon made with vodka, orange liqueur, house made longan puree, lime, and
pomegranate juice, and the More Than Vietnamese Coffee, a combination of peanut butter
