A widely popular Vietnamese restaurant known for serving pho with hefty beef short ribs is headed to Palo Alto. Pho Ha Noi is moving into the large space at 185 University Ave., which for the past five years was the home of actor Mark Wahlberg's burger chain Wahlburgers. Helen Nguyen, the owner of Pho Ha Noi, shared the announcement to her nearly 13,000 followers on Instagram on Thursday, and told SFGATE that she anticipates a spring 2023 opening. 'We are so excited for a new location [in Palo Alto],' Nguyen told SFGATE.
