Loop pho - coming soon?

Harry V. | Apr 24, 2002 01:48 PM

Loop lunchers may share my interest in the transformation currently being performed on the erstwhile Lam’s Express, a horrible pseudoChinese steam-table shop on the east side of Wabash between Madison and Washington (19 N. Wabash). The windows are papered over and there is a sign that promises: “coming soon – To Pho.” These words are accompanied by an image of a caricatured Vietnamese rustic happily slurping a giant bowl of soup with noodles in it.

These clues inspire me to dare to dream that a pho shop might soon be opening downtown. What are the odds of it being any good? Has anyone ever heard of something called "To Pho?"
