Saigon Saigon, Glebe Pt Road, Glebe

Saigon Saigon, Glebe Pt Road, Glebe
Wednesday 7 December, 2005

Tonight we were in search of a restaurant with air-conditioning - a big ask in Glebe. We settled on Saigon Saigon as it had opened the front wide doors and the rear door - trying to encourage a breeze to flow through.

This is a pleasant local restaurant. The staff are attentive & helpful when ordering and the food is above average. Having visited Vietnam earlier this year, I have been spoilt. You cannot compare the food - Phoung in Willoughby is the only Sydney vietnamese restaurant that has transported me back to Hoi An & Quy Nohn.

We devoured about four bottles of water before our entrees arrived - rice paper rolls and the vietnamese pancake. I think the pancake is the best offering on the menu. For our main courses we chose, chicken & cashews, beef luc lac and salt & pepper prawns & octopus. The last dish was too chewy, it should have had a light, crisp batter but it was heavy and hard.

By the end of the meal we had probably devoured another four bottles of water - it was that kind of night. With the bill you are presented with Snow mints - soft chewy lollies (almost like milk bottles) - I really like them & popped a few in my handbag for later.
