Earlier this week, SA PA opened its second location in Cleveland Circle, taking over the old Bangkok Bistro space. The new SA PA mirrors the look of the original location with bright teal walls accented by cherry red chairs and wooden finishes. Sriracha bottles sit on each table, at the ready. Small fans that hang from the ceilings rotate and provide relief from the warm sun that floods in through a wall-sized window. Occupying the wall next to the window, and the main focal point of the restaurant, are oversized black-and-white photos from owner Ky Nguyen's family in Vietnam.
The menu hangs on large, chalkboard-style signs on a painted brick wall. The offerings are similar to their first location in Downtown Crossing with further nods to family with items like Mama's Egg Rolls. Other Vietnamese staples are available, such as pho and different varieties of banh mi sandwiches, including banh mi burritos. Right next to the registers, vintage Vietnamese travel signs hang against a woven wooden wall. Look inside.
