Pho Hoa, the oldest Vietnamese restaurant in Dorchester, will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this Saturday, September 24, during the "Open Streets Boston" event on Dorchester Avenue.

The Pho Hoa celebration will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will commence with a lion dance performance from the Southeast Asian Coalition ( That will be followed by cake, balloons and music in a family-centric event. All are welcome to join the festivities for the free public event.

Pho Hoa will be serving a special menu for the event, rolling back prices to their original menu from 1992. A bowl of pho will only be $4.95, and rice plates and vermicelli bowls will be $5.95.

Building on the family friendly Open Streets event, Pho Hoa plans to unveil a new kids menu and also make many family-focused enhancements.

“We appreciate the support of the community for the past 30 years, and this event is a small token of our appreciation,” states co-owner Tam Le. He continues, “We want the future of Pho Hoa to be centered around the importance of family, and how strong family values are at the core of our Vietnamese heritage.”
