Noticed that the spot at Hawthorne and 34th had a Pho Van "coming soon" sign on it! This is the place that formerly housed a chain-store called Noodles, which I hoped was a sort of pan-asian style noodle bar but which was actually more of a food-court type place to get ziti or penne in tomato sauce. Or so it seemed, we never ate there.
Anyway, I am looking forward to Pho Van being close by! I'm hoping I can talk them into using Painted Hills beef...if they don't already. Being on Hawthorne they'll probably have some veggie options in any case.
