Saigon shack, a Vietnamese restaurant, the signature Saigon pho, the raw beef is sliced into thin slices and topped with the noodles. The soup made from the beef bones has a rich taste and does not taste greasy. The noodles are smooth and elastic! The fried spring rolls and fried crab cakes mixed with pork and shrimp vermicelli are crispy and delicious. The Vietnamese sandwich combines the crispness of French loaf and the sweetness of bacon and ham. It really is the New York University Canteen.
Vietnamese cuisine is a surprise during this trip. I didn't expect that Vietnamese cuisine is so popular in the United States. The Vietnamese spring rolls are the most delicious. The whole prawns in the filling are mouth-watering.
This is a Vietnamese restaurant located on McDougall Street in Soho, Lower Manhattan, New York, near Washington Square Park. The restaurant is not too large, but it is very popular, and often has to wait in line. The Vietnamese dishes and snacks made here are simple but delicious, especially the soup noodles are very economical.
We love this place. It is small and there is usually a wait to get a table. Also, there is no air conditioning so they will open the front doors. On very hot days it can be a little uncomfortable. The food is delicious and very fresh. The portions are a very nice size. We usually order a variety of items and share. They have sandwiches, noodle dishes, appetizers, etc. They do have some spicy items and they can be VERY spicy so be careful. They can adjust these for you if you ask.
No reservations, fast noisy and young restaurant. At 6pm waiting is not long. Fried fish was excellent.
The service was nice and the food was fresh, but the flavors were very muted. I had the fresh rolls with shrimp--middle of the road. The lemongrass chicken was hot and nicely grilled but the sauce was so light on fish sauce that it was just salty/sweet rather than authentic. I think the cuisine has been adapted to students/tourists' taste. Not a bad lunch but not particularly bold or authentic (and I've had fabulous Vietnamese food on the west coast and in Asia).
Located in a street near New York University, there are many restaurants next to it, but this one has always been a prosperous business, and there is always a queue for meals. The signature Pho is cheap and large, and the beef with it is also large. Other snacks taste average. It is worth mentioning that the table turnover rate is very high, and the waiters are also very fast, so the waiting time is generally relatively short.
