Pho in Towson!! (maybe?)

Had lunch at Sweet Lela's in Towson (really, really good, by the way), and while walking back through the circle down York Rd to our car, saw that the place formerly Jasmine Bistro and Fuji before that (big green signs, east side of York Rd) now has a giant green sign for "Pho Dat Thanh". We walked up - the interior of the restaurant looks finished (could be the same as Jasmine's; I never went so don't know if the burgundy and black booths is how it normally looks?), but there were no menus or signs posted on the windows other than business hours. Normally open Tues through Sun, but on this Sunday afternoon when the posted hours said it should be open it wasn't (maybe because of the holiday weekend?). There was a neon sign that said "Vietnamese Pho & Grill" and when I googled the phone number shown under it, it was the same number as Jasmine (and no answer when I dial it).

Anyone know if it's open yet, and if not, when it's scheduled to open? I can't tell you how excited I am to have a (potentially) real pho house in the Towson area -- though as particular as I am about good pho, I'll have to stop in and check out the quality of the broth and whether they have tendon, tripe, and all the good stuff available!

  1. It's a branch of the Columbia one they say will open in July. They know what they're doing.

    1. That's good news. Pho Dat Than has a spot on Snowden River Parkway in Columbia next to Nichi Bei Kai and it's really quite good. Very good news indeed!

      1. Best news I've heard in a while!

            I LOVE the Columbia location – drive down to it from Baltimore city once or twice a month.

        1. We live in Pikesville, work in Towson and schlep to Columbia. This is GREAT NEWS.

          1. Their Columbia spot is AWESOME. Giant, great food, and affordable washed down with some Viet coffee...hmmmmmmmmmm.
            Towson would save a long drive down south and $4 in the tunnels. It would definitely be worth hitting up.

              Called Columbia to learn more about the location and the only reply was "Towson, I don't know Towson, click."
