I  just drove by the former Rico’s Tacos space on NE 3rd Street and saw a beautiful beacon of light in the form of a sign announcing a new Vietnamese restaurant opening. I dropped in to talk to the owners, who were in the middle of some pretty heavy construction.

The owner, Peter Nguyen, said the family owns a Vietnamese restaurant in the Portland area and he and his wife decided to open a Vietnamese place in Bend. Nguyen plans to open on January 15. 

They already have a menu available, which has ten varieties of pho as well as other Vietnamese specialties. But really, the most important part is that Bend is finally getting a pho restaurant. It took us 30 years longer than everywhere else, but it’s here! And thank God. Because I've been trying to make pho at home and my pho sucks.
