Saigon Seafood Harbor

Robert Lauriston | Jan 4, 2005 08:09 PM

I was craving live-tank seafood so we tried Saigon Seafood Harbor last night.

Fried oysters were not the best choice of appetizer as they were huge, would have worked better in some other preparation. Simple steamed prawns (some with roe) with a spicy dipping sauce were fantastic, well worth $24 a pound. Coral grouper steamed with chives was lovely but at $44 a pound I wouldn't order it again. A dish of green "bean sprouts" (similar to pea leaf) with garlic was a nice foil.

I'll definitely go back, nice alternative to Daimo (just down the street).
