The woman-owned food truck, which debuted in Takoma Park last December, will open this fall as a Vietnamese bistro and market concept:
With the new brick-and-mortar location, Muối Tiêu (which means “salt and pepper” in Vietnamese) will be able to expand its menu offerings as well as service hours for lunch and dinner. The new concept will also include a small market section with Asian pantry items, condiments, snacks, dried goods, and other prepared items such as meal kits, pickled vegetables, and sauces. In addition to the current menu, which includes bánh mì, summer rolls, and salads, Muối Tiêu will be offering up more comfort dishes inspired by Owner/Chef Thuy-Tu Tran’s family, such as bún (rice noodle bowls), bánh xèo (sizzling crepes), bột chiên (fried rice cakes) and more along with beer and wine. The space will be undergoing renovation over the coming months and is expected to Fall 2023. In the meantime, the food truck will stay in operation for lunch service every Wednesday – Friday, 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM, at the TPSS Co-op parking lot (201 Ethan Allen Ave) and will also be available for catering and special events in Takoma Park.
Updates on Muối Tiêu’s progress will be posted on the restaurant’s website and social pages.
