A local pho favorite was broken into this past Saturday evening. A window at DaLat was shattered overnight, leaving staff distraught. 

Known for its late night pho, DaLat is one of many restaurants that had to pivot to online delivery early on in the COVID-19 pandemic. Their sister pizza restaurant, Zalat, recently opened a ghost kitchen in Uptown.

It is unknown how much money in damages the break-in at DaLat resulted in.

“If it wasn’t already hard enough to have a restaurant survive and keep our people employed in this pandemic, DaLat was broken into…” said Khanh Nguyen, DaLat owner. “If you want to stop by this week and give our folks some love and emotional support, we’re sure everyone would love to see some friendly faces.”

DaLat is located at 2537 N. Fitzhugh Ave, Dallas.
