Pho Express Is Opening in the Former Misono Grill Space at Hong Kong Supermarket/Super 88 Food Court in Allston

It looks like a new place for soup is on its way to a popular Boston food court, and it will replace a longtime eatery that closed last summer.

According to a source (Sarah Wu), Pho Express is planning to open in the old Misono Grill space at the Hong Kong Supermarket/Super 88 Food Court in Allston, with a photo sent to us showing a "coming soon" sign up for the place. A voting agenda page within the City of Boston website mentions that Shun Chen is the manager of record for the spot; it is not known if this is the same Shun Chen who is behind Shun's Kitchen in the South End--and had been behind several other restaurants as well, including Jae's Cafe, which had previously been in the Shun's Kitchen space (as soon as we find out more information, we will post an update here).

Misono Grill had been in the food court for approximately 20 years until closing either in late August or early September of 2020.

[October 20 update: According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Pho Express is now open.]
