Okay I needed to try a new Pho place for Staycationers. So, I drove towards Decatur and stopped in at Saigon Cafe…I was very glad I did.
It is a comfy spot.I started with Cha Gio Chay which is shredded cabbage, celery, mushrooms and carrots wrapped in rice paper and deep fried. It was good, but there is so much soup in the medium, too much food. (How could it ever be too much, huh?)
I order the Pho Tai – it is thin rare eye round steak that is cooked in the broth right in your bowl with rice noodles and topped with scallions and onions and whatever else you would like to put in it from here…The bean sprouts with cilantro and basil and jalepenos.These jalepenos are super spicy and super good!
My verdict is it is very good. The broth is not as deep as Pho Bac, but it is very good and the meat is actually more flavorful.
Oh, and if you are a record collector, two doors down is a vinyl store… It is a great option in the neighborhood!
