Pho, pronounced “fuh”, is the national dish of Vietnam. A “phonatic” is a person crazy about pho. After opening Pho Saigon in 2006, Pat and Sara Lee noticed Vietnamese cuisine was lacking representation among other ethnic types of food that were gaining steam in the mainstream market. Phonatic was born out of the desire to educate the novice on what real Vietnamese food is. The mission was simple. Create an inviting, clean, modern, environment. Educate and serve “Real Vietnamese Food” to the masses. That goal came to fruition when Pat and Sara successfully opened the first Phonatic in 2011, with many more to come!
