According to new signage up in Preston Center, Dallas can soon expect another notch in its Vietnamese restaurant belt.
The new Miss Chi Vietnamese appears to be from the folks behind Tanoshi Ramen, which itself is a new noodle restaurant in Deep Ellum. Joey and Chi Le are the pair behind Tanoshii and Wicked Po'boys and Seafood in Richardson.
Miss Chi is taking shape in the hull of a second Wicked Po'boys location in Preston Center that closed earlier this year and underwent remodeling, apparently shifting its focus from Louisiana to Vietnam.
Since the Les' other ventures focus on distinct dishes (with extra fare rounding out the menu), it's not a huge leap to assume that Miss Chi might traffic mainly in bahn mi, pho or both. For now all we have is a name and speculation, but let's see what happens if we stare long enough.
