Little Saigon Cafe, SF Tenderloin report w/ pics

hhc | Jul 13, 201009:58 PM     1

CASH ONLY (not sure when they'll get a credit card machine). I wanted to grab a quick Vietnamese sandwich but Saigon Sandwich & Baguette Express were closed. I remembered Little Saigon Cafe had a steam table with ready made pot stickers and thought I could grab some of those.

Walked into the tiny cafe and noticed they've changed the format. It's no longer got ready-made steam table food, everything is made fresh to order.

I asked the Caucasian guy what's his favorite sandwich and he said the Grilled Pork banh mi $2.75 is good, so I got that. I also got a Vietnamese iced coffee w/ condensed milk $2.25. My total was $5.48, CASH ONLY for now. He also recommended the Special Combination $3.25. Will try next time.

The sandwich was tiny, I wish it was bigger but the flavors were good. Nice toasted baguette, tender juicy pork, I think a bit of pate, pickled veggies, & I said add jalapenos.

Other stuff they got:
Spring rolls 3 for $3.75
green onion pan cake $2 - will try next time
lamb skewers $2 - will try next time
chives & pork pot sticker (6) $3.99 - will try next time
cabbage & pork pot sticker (6) $3.99
vegetarian pot stickers (6) $3.99
Noodle soup $5.75-7.25
rice plates $5.75-6.75

They have14 chairs & 5 two-top tables so a really tiny cafe.

Hrs:
M-F 9:30-9
Sat-Sun 10-6
