Pho Real and Mochi Dough Open in Boston's Back Bay

A combination pho spot/donut shop is in the process of opening in a shared space in the Back Bay of Boston.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Pho Real and Mochi Dough appear to be going through a soft opening on Newbury Street, with a minutes page within the city's website saying that the space includes a seasonal patio along with seating inside. Mochi Donuts is a chain of Japanese donut shops that currently has no other locations in the Northeast, while Pho Real does not appear to be a chain.

The address for Pho Real and Mochi Dough is 279 Newbury Street, Boston, MA, 02116. The website for Mochi Dough can be found at
