Thank You God: Bend Gets a Vietnamese Restaurant! 

We just drove by the former Rico’s Tacos space on NE 3rd Street an noticed a beautiful beacon of light in the form of a sign announcing a new Vietnamese restaurant.

We just drove by the former Rico's Tacos space on NE 3rd Street an noticed a beautiful beacon of light in the form of a sign announcing a new Vietnamese restaurant. 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. 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 it's harder than you'd think.

  • Jackalope Grill's Women Tasting Wine is Awesome this Month

    Sometimes Bend is flush with dining events, making me wish I had buckets of cash to blow on food and wine. Actually, I pretty much always wish I had buckets of cash, but sometimes the desire is especially great.
