"Never Forget Your Roots"

AUTHENTIC Family Recipes X crafted with love 


Located in East Hartford,  Phở 501 is a fine example of Vietnamese culture as we believe food is the best way to bring families together. ^_^


Phở 501 officially opened its doors on Sept 1992  It started off as a continuation of the previous restaurant called "The Omelette House." At the time, Vietnamese cuisine was something most Americans were still unaware of.  The founder and chef Toan Nguyen would serve eggs with baguettes everyday and on the weekends he would cook some Pho for the Vietnamese customers that would come in.  He was unsure if the American customers would want to try or like this popular Vietnamese delicacy.  As time progress, customers began to request for this intriguing Phở until it completely took over the eggs on the menu...and the rest they say is history. 

We humbly been honored to have won "CT Best of Hartford" for "Best Soup" in 2014, 2016, 2017, & 2018. In addition, been feature in numerous publications such as The Hartford Courant, Connecticut Magazine, Yelp & Best Things in CT!
