Miami New Times' Description

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. Owner Frankie Cuong Nguyen had a noted restaurant (Mekong) in Saigon, and it shows; what's offered is all both tasty and authentic - with occasional imaginative East-West fusion touches. 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. A starter of papaya-beef jerky salad is also wonderful - crunchy green papaya strips, jerky (not tough stuff from a package, but sweet cured dried beef), and crushed peanuts, with two sauces: nuoc cham and tangier sweet/sour. 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.
