A new, much-needed Vietnamese option is coming to the downtown Orlando lunch scene.

As first reported by Bungalower, LePho is planning to open in early September at 165 S. Orange Ave. in the Chase Plaza building, where Spice Burgr used to be.

The new concept specializes in meals that are $10 and under, offering rice vermicelli, pho with your choice of protein, bánh mì subs, sides and drink options.

Focusing on busy office lunchers, LePho's concept will be greatly appreciated in a pho-barren downtown.
