Tucked in a strip mall on Convoy Street between a kickboxing studio and a bakery sits a vacation to a foreign land. This escape is in the form of Phuong Trang, offering a selection of Pho, as well as traditional delights. Inspired by the Vietnamese home cooking style of Com Thang, meaning “month of meals” catering to family and friends, this establishment serves appetizing Vietnamese cuisine to Kearny Mesa locals. Besides appetizers, and Pho, diners can choose between Rice Paper Wraps, Stir Fried Noodles, Salads, Broken Rice Dishes, Seafood Specials, and Vegetarian dishes. The setting is tranquil, with tan wallpaper covering the walls, and small frames of various Vietnamese paintings adding to the décor. Also, Phuong Trang offers take out, so plenty of hungry patrons rush in for their boxed up lunch. For an exotic date night, a nontraditional business lunch, or family party, the place to be is Phuong Trang. Its welcoming atmosphere, vast selection, and hefty portions allow diners to sample favorites or expand the palate with something new.
