SALTLIGHT STATION is a craft coffee shop and eatery featuring locally roasted coffee beverages and modern Vietnamese cuisine. Our signature pho broth is crafted by slowly simmering choice meat and bones with aromatic spices and NO MSG. We believe that SALTLIGHT STATION is a special place for family, friends, and the local community to gather and enjoy good eats. We hope to see you soon!
How did we get the name, “SALTLIGHT?”
Inspiration comes from scripture, as we are reminded to be the “SALT of the Earth” and “LIGHT of the World”. We hope our family business can help season and brighten this small corner of Allen. We hope our little shop could become a gathering place that makes a positive impact on the community.
How did the concept of COFFEE + PHO combination come about?
It was a long time dream of mine to open a community-centered coffee shop - I even drafted a business plan when I took a course on Social Entrepreneurship. As a Vietnamese native, I also love eating pho, and thought why not offer both of these craft comfort food items I love under the same roof?
How is our Pho different from other Pho restaurants?
Our Pho-losopy is to keep the menu simple, fresh, and use high quality ingredients - like premium cuts of beef for our tender Prime Rib Pho, slow-roasted Brisket for our Banh Mi Sandwiches, Shrimp seared-to-order for our Noodle Salad bowls, grilled whole Chicken Breast sliced-to-order on our Rice Bowls. Pho is traditionally seasoned with MSG to achieve the savory taste. We don’t use MSG in our cooking as my husband is severely allergic to it. We offer a no-MSG Pho recipe so families like ours can enjoy a savory bowl without the negative side effects of MSG. We hope you also enjoy it!
