Little Saigon Marlboro

Figured it's time we got the name and place right in a thread.

For readers who know, this place was originally located in a storefront in Howell and just recently moved to its new location on Route 9 in Marlboro. In its old location they were mainly a bahn mi sandwich takeout joint. The new place has a full Vietnamese menu and plenty of clean, comfortable seating. They also still have the bahn mi, but you have to ask for a separate bahn mi menu.

We had four dishes and shared some rolls first. The rolls were as I remembered them, good, small, and a little too greasy. The dipping sauce was first rate. The dishes were mixed, with the huge bowl of noodle soup the best item. Beef cubes in a brown sauce were decent, the bbq chicken was very good, but the fried rice and the chicken with broccoli were both dry and not that flavorful.

I will definately go there for some bahn mi in the future, but I am still looking forward to the return of Saigon 2 when they open in the spring in Red Bank.
