Side Dishes: Pho Dang adds second location

When Pho Dang Vietnamese Café opened in Winooski in the summer of 2007, it was one of the first signs of the impending Vietnamese restaurant domination of the Burlington area. Still a favorite for many pho fans, the restaurant will open its second location at 9 Park Street in Essex Junction on March 2.

That location has been home to Pho Vietnam since July 2011. Pho Dang co-owner Pany Deng says that eatery’s owner, restaurant newbie Tuan Nguyen, decided the biz wasn’t for him. (Nguyen couldn’t be reached for comment.) Pany Deng and husband, Son Deng, jumped at the chance to take over the lease and expand their booming business in a location with a larger kitchen.

Pany Deng promises that the Essex Pho Dang will feature all the dishes Winooski regulars have grown to love, along with several new specialties. The menu hasn’t been finalized, but she’s fairly certain a sour soup will be among the additions. Get your slurping spoons ready.
