The boat shape of the Pho Bac Restaurant dates to the 1950s when the building was an ice cream shop. As Vietnamese businesses were beginning to settle in the neighborhood, the building became the site of the first pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) restaurant in Seattle in 1982. After nearly 40 years of operation the restaurant is still known only as “the Boat” and continues to be operated by the same family. The Pho Bac boat is a visual institution in the Little Saigon neighborhood.
