The city of West Chester will soon be home to a new Vietnamese eatery called Saigon Noodle Bar.
The restaurant will host its grand opening on Aug. 14 beginning at 11 a.m. and will be located at 9220 Allen Road, off of Union Center Boulevard.
"The restaurant will offer authentic Vietnamese cuisine as well as special handcrafted drinks that will be unique to our area," says restaurant co-owner Tim Le in an email interview.
The menu is divided into five sections: starters, pho and noodle soups, noodle dishes, rice dishes and vegetarian dishes. Saigon Noodle Bar also offers low carb noodles for a $2 upcharge.
According to Le, he is most excited for their banh mi sandwiches, which make for a "quick, easy and filling lunch." The restaurant plans to feature a specialty weekend menu and urges guests to keep up on the changing items by visiting their Facebook page.
Currently, Saigon Noodle Bar does not have an alcoholic beverage program, but they plan to offer beer and wine in the future. For now, guests can choose from a wide variety of non-alcoholic beverages including fresh sugar cane juice, Vietnamese iced coffee, fruit-infused Italian sodas, milk tea and more.
The restaurant's design follows a simple, modern Asian style with ambient lighting and neutral colors and features work by local artists.
