Yummy Pho & Bò Né debuted over the weekend, making it the first restaurant to open its doors in the brand new Katy Asian Town development off I-10.
The Vietnamese spot at 23119 Colonial Parkway (inside the H-Mart) serves up traditional standbys pho and bò né, as its name would suggest. The restaurant’s take on pho comes with a short rib floating in clear broth noodle soup. Bò né, starts with diced filet mignon, topped with an egg over easy, a slice of spam, and accompanied by a baguette with pâté on the side.
Early Yelp reviewers have given the new eatery a shining endorsement. For diners who have never tried bò né, Yummy has a instructions on how to eat the dish posted on its Facebook page, alongside a mouth-watering photo of the dish.
A host of other exciting restaurants will be joining Yummy when the development is complete, including Korean barbecue, a soju bar, a poke shop, and a ramen shop. Last year, Eater reported that James Beard-nominated chef Jianyun Ye would expand his restaurant Mala Sichuan Bistro to the area as well.
Yummy Pho & Bò Né is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., closed Saturday and Sunday.
