A very happy first anniversary to Xoia Vietnamese Eats, located along Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park.

The restaurant opened up late last June, offering up a nice, cool patio area to enjoy your meal and an affordable menu. A fan of the tofu Pho, I’ve also heard great things about the bold directions they’ve gone with non-traditional menu items such as the Pho Beef Tacos.

And, speaking of Pho Beef Tacos, they are giving one away for free when you purchase an entrée on Saturday, June 25 (while supplies last). You can also get a few Vietnamese Iced Coffee (soooo good)!

If you’ve never met the owners, Jose Sarinana and Thien Ho, they are incredibly pleasant and great for a community like Echo Park. In an email, they told us about celebrating their first year with Xoia:

“It has been an awesome adventure in creating and recreating food this past year! More importantly, this past year allowed us to meet and stay in touch with so many great people who have embraced us in their food community.”

Congrats to Jose, Thien, and the staff – see you soon!

A Dodgers "sleeved fleece." Yes please!
