Saigon Cuisine

Saigon Cuisine serves up a piping hot bowl of pho that is as close to a plastic stool on the side of a Ho Chi Minh back street as one can get without a plane ticket. It comes in many shapes, sizes, and forms. You can order chicken, beef, seafood, or veggie varieties of the same dish. The common denominator in each variation is the deep-flavored broth. The husband and wife team of Dung and Mai Lan are from Vietnam and have spent the past two decades perfecting their recipes in America. If the pho isn’t enough to make you feel like you’ve taken a one-day trip to Southeast Asia, the decorative traditional Vietnamese atmosphere, complete with a full band on a stage, will. When it comes to pho, the closest you’re going to get to the real thing is right there on 441.
