It's been a tough few months for long-lived Asian restaurants in Montrose and Midtown. Following the closures of Van Loc in October and Hollywood Vietnamese in November, Dua revealed on Facebook that its last day will be Wednesday.
Formerly known as Mo Mong, Dua closed at the beginning of 2013 to remodel and tweak its concept. When it reopened in February, the menu added new items like ramen and expanded some of the Vietnamese options. Design changes brought a brighter, more modern interior in place of Mo Mong's dark red tones. These changes were apparently not enough to save it.
Still, after 17 years on lower Westheimer, the restaurant is not without its fans. Expect a big crowd at the final service to pay tribute with one last frozen cosmo.
