B-TOWN BIZ: Pho La Vang Open In B-Town!
There’s a new Pho restaurant in Burien. It’s called Pho La Vang, which the Vietnamese know as “Mother Mary”, or the Virgin Mary.
Owner/Manager Lan T. Pham selected Burien for the site of her first restaurant as “I think Burien is a growing city. People are warm and welcoming. We want to be part of the growth.”
Lan has worked hard to provide Burien diners an authentic Vietnamese restaurant, right down to the lights and decor. Her special chef is her sister Le Hoa, who has recently immigrated to Seattle from Vietnam.
If you like Pho, La Vang’s has a wide selection. There’s 14 traditional Pho dishes with meat, plus additional seafood, chicken and veggie Pho. They’ve also got special kids menu and a Vermicellia Bowl with all sorts of of great ingredients/selections. They do some stir fried dishes as well as steamed and fried rice dishes. They also specialize in Vietnamese sandwiches.
La Vang’s menu presents 20 different Bubble Teas and traditional Vietnamese and American beverages.
And finally, there’s dessert. Cakes, churros, ice cream and apple and sweet potato pie. Wait a minute, is sweet potato pie really a Vietnamese delicacy? Lan says it’s not, but the customers really love it. The sweet potato pie is something you can order up for your special party or family get together.
And here’s a special deal for September, with every meal order, Lan will make sure you that your table receives a complimentary order of spring rolls or egg rolls.
You’ll find Lan and her restaurant at 217 SW 152nd St., across from Bank of America, and just a few doors away from Yo’s Bistro. La Vang’s is open from 10-9 Monday-Saturday and 10-6 on Sunday.
