Rate-A-Restaurant #337: Miss SaiGon (San Francisco)
Restaurant: Miss Saigon
Location: 100 6th St (San Francisco)
Type of restaurant: Vietnamese
We stipulated: The Vietnamese restaurant we planned to eat at, near our hotel, was too crowded, with a 45 minute wait. After a quick Yelp consultation, we decided to walk over to Miss SaiGon. (Yes, the "G" is capitalized.) Via a slightly sketchy street.
They stipulated: Christmas comes early to Miss Saigon. It was the first weekend of November, and already the decorations were up and the TV was playing "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." Ho ho ho.
What we ordered: Dau Hu Xau Rau Cai (Golden tofu stir-fried with vegetables in black bean sauce; $10.95); Bun Thit Nuong Cha Gio Noodles (Vermicelli with grilled pork, egg roll, lettuce, cucumber, bean sprout; $8.95); Con Ga Ngu VI (Five spiced chicken served with steamed rice and vegetable; $8.25)
High point: The pork chop.
Low point: The veggies and tofu were way too deep fried.
Overall impression: Good prices. But strange environment.
Will we return: We're not in SF enough to really ever make a return.
