Those in the know about pho often can be seen slurping at My Tho, the unassuming but awesome Vietnamese restaurant at 500 E. Central — right at the corner of Central and Emporia.
But they won’t be seen there for a while. My Tho is closed and will remain so at least through the end of the month while the owners do some remodeling.
They’re redoing the floor, replacing the ceiling and cleaning up the part of the restaurant that’s held old pool tables and other junk so that they can add more tables and expand the dining room.
The work should take about three more weeks. I’ll let you know when the My Tho reopens.
