At the same time that Super Hot Dog opened on MacDougal Street, a late-night option opened on the East Side’s drunk row — St. Marks Place! As anticipated, Pho 32’s fifth location is up and running. It’s currently serving till 2 a.m., but a manager told us that in two weeks, it’ll be open 24 hours. Of course, we know how those promises go (Bun? Delicatessen?), but hey, despite the Vietnamese and Japanese soups, the place is Korean-owned, so expect it to actually happen. A liquor license is also in the works. For now it’s bring-your-own-soju, and there are tables with built-in stoves for shabu-shabu. In case you’re new to the tradition, three separate flat-screen TVs display a constantly looping instructional video (complete with slo-mo eating shots) on how to prepare a hot pot and how to roll your own Vietnamese wrap. Here’s a look inside, and at the menu.
