Taste of Vietnam: Muối Tiêu Opens Its Doors in Takoma Park Today

Vietnamese restaurant Muối Tiêu is opening today at 7006 Carroll Ave. in Takoma Park.

Woman-owned and family-run, Muối Tiêu began as a food truck in 2022 and took over the former space of Mark’s Kitchen after owner Mark Choe closed the restaurant following 32 years of operation.

According to Main Street Takoma, the restaurant is a 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.

Currently, online ordering is not available, but this may change soon. The restaurant also plans to extend its hours and offer more items on the menu.

Muối Tiêu will be open on Mondays and Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m., on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 9 p.m., and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
