Old coach transformed into pho stall in Hanoi

A vendor in Hanoi came up with the idea of renovating an old coach into a stall serving Vietnam’s iconic noodle soup pho that has been drawing curious foodies.

The eatery owned by Ta Thi Thu Hien sits on Vo Chi Cong Street in Tay Ho District, near Nhat Tan Bridge.

Diners can easily see the vendor prepare bowls of pho through the open window.

All 29 seats were removed, and diners can easily see the vendor prepare bowls of pho through the open window.

Hien said her family bought the used coach from their friend for VND100 million ($4,000).

They then transformed it into a chicken noodle soup stall.

Hien used to work at a rice restaurant on Quan Su Street but switched to selling pho in 2017.

A bowl of pho here costs from VND60,000.

Diners can order side dishes like bagel twists, poached eggs and boneless chicken legs for VND5,000-30,000. The restaurant has four waiters. Every day, the eatery consumes more than 30 kilograms of noodles and sells more than 150 bowls of pho within two to three hours.

The most crowded time is in the morning when diners typically enjoy their bowl of pho in a wide-open yard.

"The eatery is located on the street facing Noi Bai International Airport, so we also serve tourists and those moving out of the city early in the morning. Normally, the shop is open until 10 a.m. but on weekends, the number of customers is high," said Hien.
