“I’ve seen a lot of restaurants in Tuscaloosa but hadn’t seen anything like Pho Town yet. This restaurant features many of my family’s recipes,” said Bui.
Though Pho Town is not part of a franchise, it will draw inspiration from the other Vietnamese restaurants that Bui owns in the Memphis and Houston areas. Aside from pho, Pho Town will also feature other authentic Vietnamese dishes, including Com Tay Cam (hot clay pot entrees), Banh Mi (Vietnamese subs), Bun (vermicelli dishes), and other various entrees and desserts.
In addition to the authentic Vietnamese food offerings, patrons will also be able to enjoy a variety of Asian beverages, including spicy fruit slushes and various bubble teas, made with boba pearls, little chewy tapioca balls that float through the beverage.
Overall, Bui’s goal has been to bring the flavors of his childhood to customers in Tuscaloosa who are looking for authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
“People will know our restaurant is different based on the seasonings and the flavors they are tasting. Our food is high quality, and I consider it healthy, because we use minimal oil and salt. Our food speaks for itself,” Bui said.
