Fast-Growing Vietnamese Vegan Restaurant Mama Đút Is Already Opening a Second Location

The announcement comes just months after Mama Đút opened its first brick-and-mortar.

Not long after opening its first location, Mama Đút is getting ready to open a second.

The Vietnamese vegan restaurant announced today it will open a new location on Northeast Alberta Street near 15th Avenue only a few months after opening its first brick-and-mortar spot in Southeast Portland.

Owner Thuy Pham made the announcement in an emotional Instagram video:

Speaking over the phone, Pham told WW that the target date for a grand opening is July 4. The new, larger location will have additional kitchen space to accommodate pop-ups from other restaurants—Mama Đút got its start as a pop-up less than year ago.

"People were always asking me, 'Do you have kitchen space, do you have kitchen space?'" says Pham. "So I really wanted to give back to the generosity of the community."
