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 is our banh mi sandwich different?
It starts with a fresh toasted hoagie bread sourced from a local french bakery. Spread on our house made vegan sriracha mayo. Add your protein of grilled lemongrass pork, char-grilled chicken breast, pan-seared tofu, or slow roasted brisket. Topped with pickled carrots, cucumber, cilantro, and jalapeno on the side.
How is our Pho differenT?
Our Pho-losopy is to keep the menu simple, fresh, and use high quality ingredients. Clean and pure water is essential for making broth. We invested in a commercial water filtration system to assure excellent water quality for our bone broth from the start. We start by simmering choice meat and bones for 12+ hours and add pho aromatics of ginger, star anise, shallots, and cloves. Pho is traditionally seasoned with MSG to achieve the savory taste, but we do not use MSG in our recipes as my husband is severely allergic to it. We offer a No-MSG Pho recipe so MSG sensitive families like ours can enjoy a savory bowl without the negative side effects. Finally, we skim the excess fat from our bone broth before serving to achieve a flavorful and healthy broth for our pho that you can enjoy sipping by itself!
We prepare our pho with the highest quality meats. Our Prime Ribs and Briskets are slow-roasted to achieve the most tender and flavorful meat in a bowl of pho. Our 100% Beef Meatballs are made in-house from ground ribeye with no fillers. Our Chicken pho is served with flame grilled chicken breast hand-carved to order. You may also order any of our pho with our house Spicy Lemongrass bone broth!
