The menu is more limited at this little eatery than at most of Miami's Asian places. But prices are equally diminutive, and quality is superior. A terrific introduction for those unfamiliar with Vietnamese food is the Saigon Special combination plate, including an elegant crisp-skinned spring roll; skewered strips of juicy grilled pork (chicken is an alternate option) and jumbo shrimp; a heap of rice vermicelli, which looks like linguini but is appealingly toothier; and fish sauce dressing. Don't miss the pho, full-flavored beef noodle soup that's a meal in a bowl. Iced boba (tapioca pearl \bubble\" drinks) are a fun finish.
