Hanco’s Coming to Mr. Souvlaki Space on Montague Street

Several BHBers have commented that a sign has been posted in the old Mr. Souvlaki space at 147 Montague Street announcing that Vietnamese sandwich shop Hanco’s will be opening a branch there.

The mini-chain was part of a controversy last year after one of its former employees left to open the mysteriously similar Henry’s a few blocks from Hanco’s flagship store in Park Slope.

Previously, the space had been set to be a dentist’s office.

    Heights Falafel used to be called Habibi’s. We still call it that too. They’re good, but inconsistent. Like several local food places (eg: Park Plaza and Teresa’s) check that you got what you ordered – they frequently, in our experience, seem to be leaving things out of the order.

    Hoping the community will support Hanco’s. We had a pretty decent Vietnamese restaurant called Kim Paris on corner of Montague & Henry which closed a couple years ago. We went there twice a week for their large bowel of Pho but often we were the only ones there. Never understood the lackluster patronage since price was cheap, abt $8 for Pho and friendly service. Last time I went to Hanco’s they only served banh mi, bubble tea and spring rolls. Wonder if they’ll add Pho.

    @Joe: Doubt it, since the Hanco locations in Boerum Hill and Park Slope don’t serve Pho. So Joe, no Pho to go. (sorry, couldn’t resist)

    My friend lives near Hanco’s at park slope and she said Hanco’s started selling pho few months ago. Lets hope they will serve pho for this location.

    Has it opened yet? I’m hungry…and too lazy to walk over Bergen Street (or Nicky’s on Atlantic).

    There is a sign on the window. Hanco’s grand opening is this Sunday.
