Update: The downtown Super Pho closed due to family issues. You can still find them on 1630 Lancaster Dr NE Lancaster
For the past week I've been thinking that its about time I get down to the new Vietnamese restaurant on Lancaster to taste some super pho. I heard it was supposed to open on April 20th. I didn't know how or when, but I knew I'd get me some tasty noodle soup.
Today, as my family wondered what we should do for dinner, I offered Super Pho as an option. I had to add the caveat that it may or may not be open. We drove down Lancaster as I tried to remember exactly where Super Pho's location was, past Kyoto and Big Lots. Then, suddenly, there it was. As we approached I noticed the blinds were drawn and the "Super Pho, Coming Soon!" sign was still hanging off the roof.
There was no way it was open yet. Every blind was drawn, hiding scattered booths and haphazard interior decorating. The front door appeared to be half boarded up, but when I took a closer look i noticed it was a grass-skirt type decoration covering the lower half of the window. In spite of the effort to give this place a tropical feel, the boards leaning just inside the foyer gave off an unfinished vibe.
Maybe its a sign of the state of the economy or an investment in a bad contractor. Needless to say, none of us tasted the noodley goodness this place promised to offer. Hungry and slightly disappointed we turned around and headed toward the land of kitchy memorabilia, never ending fries, and big juicy burgers....let me know if this place ever opens and I'll be there to try it out.
