One of Portland’s Vietnamese destinations is expanding to the suburbs. Ha (Christina) Luu and William Vuong, the owners of Rose VL Deli and Ha VL, are opening a third restaurant in Beaverton, the Oregonian reports. Details are scarce at this point, but the family is currently considering a location near Nike World Headquarters, where four of Vuong and Luu’s children have worked.
The news was a part of a larger feature on the couple, who opened Ha VL in 2004. The family-owned restaurants have attracted national and local attention, from James Beard semifinalist lists to the Eater Portland map of essential restaurants. Both restaurants are famous for their rotating soups, which change daily — the second restaurant, Rose VL Deli, is particularly treasured for its Saturday cao lau special. Stay tuned for more updates on the third restaurant.
