While sitting in traffic at Main & 18th, I glanced over to notice a seriously eye-catching dining room. I didn’t recognize the space. But it seemed too beautiful not to know. The sign read, Anh + Chi.
For 18 years, 3388 Main Street — the address I’d been admiring — had been home to Pho Hoang, an iconic Vietnamese restaurant run by Ly and Hoang Van Nguyen. Their children, Amelie and Vincent, are the new owners of Anh + Chi and their mission is to honour their parents legacy on the very cement floor laid by their late father in 1996.
