Nguyen Pho + Grill (500 Grand) opens today in the River Market. The Recommended Daily talked to husband and wife Jack and Kim Nguyen back in July about their plans to serve pho, spring rolls, banh mi and rice vermicelli noodles.
Kim is the chef. It’s her recipe for the pho (she won’t reveal any ingredients other than roasted shank bones), as well as the coconut flan. Jack will manage the front of the house. The two have been working together for the past 15 years, most recently on a nail salon that they sold in May 2013.
“We’re both from Vietnam and we want to bring our culture here and introduce authentic Vietnamese cuisine to Americans,” Kim Nguyen told The Recommended Daily last month.
Nguyen Pho + Grill is open from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. The phone number is 816-929-0626.[Spring rolls image via Facebook: Nguyen Pho + Grill]
