Third to be profiled: King Noodle House Pho Hoang located at 10615 97 St NW. We had a chat with Linda Hoang, the daughter of the restaurant owners.
What’s the origin of the restaurant?
This is a family run restaurant, originating from Vietnam with Grandma Hoang. “King Noodle House” was added in the name for an easier Canadian takeaway.
How long has the restaurant been open?
It’s been open for 21 years; 11 years at the current location.
What is the style of cuisine served at the restaurant?
Vietnamese noodle soup (pho).
What makes your restaurant special?
King Noodle House is one of the oldest running Vietnamese restaurants in Edmonton! We are known for the best pho in town, and are thus deserving the name “King Noodle”! Our pho recipe has been passed down from 3 generations. We are also the home to the iconic “Moustache Man”.
Why do you think people should dine in Chinatown?
Chinatown is a great hub for good and affordable food. There are a lot of great restaurants where you can experience authentic, quality Southeast Asian food. A majority of the restaurants in the neighbourhood are family owned and operated.
Do you have any hopes for the future of Edmonton’s Chinatown?
I am hoping for more positive effects from the new downtown arena – an increase in foot traffic and more activity at night will help support and boost local businesses.
