Known for it's spring rolls, this fresh and organic vietnamese bistro is my new favorite spot at Lakeside Village. Saigon has an eclectic menu with many healthy options for those who choose to eat on the lighter side.
Crispy Spring Rolls
They come with a side of "fish sauce" (don't worry it is much better than it sounds) and you can add different spicy sauces to mix in if you choose.
In the past I have ordered the chicken lettuce wraps and curry chicken but today I was feeling a little more adventurous and decided to try Pho soup for the first time.
I ordered this because I wanted to keep things a little lighter. I was pleasantly surprised! I ordered the soup with meatballs but there are a variety of options. (next time I will try the chicken-it is more my style) It comes with a side of bean sprouts, fresh basil, limes and jalapeños to add to your bowl. In the soup I found rice noodles, onion, cilantro, green onion, and of corse the meatballs.
I especially liked the cilantro in the soup! All of the flavors blended so well, I was truly impressed. It all reminded me a of a more exotic wedding soup.
The chicken in this salad reminded me a little of a fresher bourbon chicken (like what you see in the mall) It comes with rice noodles, lettuce, bean sprouts, onion and chicken with a side of fish sauce as the dressing. Again, we like to add a spicy sauce to it that comes on the table in three different varieties.
All in all this is a wonderful new hot spot! Don't be afraid to get out of the box and try something new!
