Seven hungry chowhounds showed up at Miss SaiGon ( yup, for some reason they use a Capital "G") for lunch today. $17 pp later we left pleasantly stuffed, after a pleasant meal in pleasant surroundings...that being said, for me, it was a pleasant, unmemorable lunch that I wouldn't rush back for....except for the Bun cha ha Noi: Grilled ground pork, pork shoulder served with lettuce( for some reason they were VERY generous with the pork but skimped on the lettuce so not enough for wraps) vermicelli noodles, seasoned fish sauce dip, and herbs. Both the pork sausage and shoulder were tender and oozing flavor--totally delish.
( this succulent dish was picked by our fearless leader, Melanie Wong...natch.)
Other dishes we tried were:
1. Goi du du bo: Green papaya salad w/ beef jerky and peanuts
2. Chicken salad with cabbage
3. Banh Xeo: Vietnamese pancake with shrimp and pork
4.Com Tay Cam:Crunchy rice combo seafood pot
5. Bo Bit Tet: Grilled steak in wine sauce
6. Bo luc lad dac biet: shakend beef
7. Garlic noodles
I'll let the others weigh in on their faves.
