Tram's Kitchen

412-682-2688  •  $$
ADDRESS: 4050 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15224
CUISINE: Vietnamese, Noodle House
FEATURES: BYOB, Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly, Cash Only
DESCRIPTION

Vietnamese immigrants Thao Le and wife Bach-Cuc Truong moved to Pittsburgh in 1993 and opened their delightful Tram's Kitchen four years later. The intimate eatery is sentimentally and appropriately named after their daughter, Tram, who, because of visa problems, was not originally able to leave Vietnam with her parents. By the time she arrived in Pittsburgh in 2000, the restaurant bearing her name had already established itself as one of Pittsburgh's favorites, thanks to her parents' impeccable skills in the kitchen. Start with the sublime spring rolls, two to an order, packed with noodles, vegetables, shredded pork, basil, mint, coriander and shrimp. There's much to recommend on the remainder of the menu, too, including the Vietnamese pancake (a cross between an omelet and a crêpe, with a stuffing of shrimp, pork, mushrooms, onions and bean sprouts) and a delectable bowl of the hearty soup-stew pho Hanoi.

"Those in search of Vietnamese comfort food have long made Tram's Kitchen their destination for food that is both flavorful and affordable. In the evening and on weekends, Tram's Kitchen often has a full house with tables filled with couples of all ages as well as big groups of friends, students and families talking, laughing and eating."

ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Cash only. No alcohol available. BYOB. Serving lunch and dinner Tue-Sun. Closed Mon.
