A Philadelphia pho shop is expanding to metro Atlanta.
The owners of popular Pho Ga Thanh Thanh are slated to open Pho Ga Tony Tony at the Carter Oak Plaza at 5495 Jimmy Carter Blvd. in Norcross as early as September, Eater Atlanta reports.
The restaurant is run by Tony Le, whose parents opened Pho Ga Thanh Thanh in the East Kensington neighborhood in Philadelphia. Le serves as both a partner and executive chef.
“Chef Tony is ready to expand upon what his family started by sharing this iconic Phở Gà with the world,” the restaurant’s website states.
“Pho Ga Tony Tony focuses on only high quality ingredients, a slow and generous cook time, and of course a couple hidden secrets,” the site says. “This is Phở Gà like you’ve never had before, so delicious you’ll cry, and so comforting you’ll feel like you’re being hugged by your grandmother. That is, if your grandmother is a Vietnamese dude named Tony and makes the best chicken soup in history.”
The restaurant will specialize in chicken pho and new noodle varieties.
