Very Little Saigon Served

Desserts are a trip, particularly the one with psychedelic green gelatin noodles, yellow squares of mung bean curd, tapioca pearls, coconut milk, and crushed ice. The texturally squeamish might be less than appreciative, but everyone else should find this an exceedingly refreshing finish to their meal -- topped off of course with potent, chicory-enhanced iced Vietnamese coffee sweetened with condensed milk.

I'm tempted to say this restaurant isn't half bad, but in fact that's exactly what it is -- the bad half being Chinese dishes in Viet camouflage. Stick to the buns, phos, spring rolls, and desserts, and Little Saigon City won't let you down.
