Yuan Wonton, Pho King Rapidos, bakery open shared space in Park Hill

Good things come in threes. This week, Yuan Wonton, Denver’s hottest food truck; Pho King Rapidos, a Vietnamese food truck with global influences; and Sweets & Sourdough, a delivery-only artisan bakery, debuted their shared restaurant space in Park Hill.

The restaurant: 2878 Fairfax St., Denver

About: This isn’t your typical restaurant setup. Yuan Wonton, Pho King Rapidos, which is operating under the name Thuy by PKR, and Sweets & Sourdough plan to alternate their days and hours of operation in the same space.

“It’s hard enough building one restaurant,” Penelope Wong, owner of Yuan Wonton, wrote on Instagram. “We built three in one.”

Wong met Amy Patterson and Rachel Elkon, owners of Sweets & Sourdough, through the shared commissary space where they prepped the dishes for their trucks. And she met husband-and-wife duo Long Nguyen and Shauna Seaman, owners of Pho King Rapidos, through the food truck circuit, collaborating on events together. The trio of businesses have created a sign with each of their three logos on it, and the respective business’ logo will be lit depending on which is serving food that day.

What’s on the menu: Yuan Wonton is serving its chili-garlic wontons and homemade dumplings on Wednesday and Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. The former food truck will also have an all-Asian breakfast menu on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

On Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m., Thuy by PKR is serving a collaborative menu with Yuan Wonton. And on Friday and Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m., the Vietnamese-inspired food truck, which also has a spot in Avanti Food & Beverage, is serving some of its classics, like the pho banh mi, as well as more family-style Vietnamese meals.

Sweets & Sourdough wants to be the Park Hill neighborhood’s staple retail bakeshop, open Thursday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., selling loaves and pastries and serving coffee.

“We will be a revolving door of comfort and cuisine that is nostalgic and important to us, a revolving door of first generational unique twists on traditional flavors; and we will be a revolving door of scratched baked loaves and breads and swirls of pastries,” Wong wrote on Instagram.

More: Reservations for Yuan Wonton and Thuy by PKR are available online, and walk-in seating is available. No reservations are necessary for Sweets & Sourdough.

Opening: Sept. 5, 2023
