The Year of Southeast Asian food continues on. Today we check out a newer spot on Argyle. Miss Saigon is a young couples ode to the city of Saigon and it's food. What I like about this place compared to some of the others in the area is the size of the menu. It's not large at all, and thus the dishes they make they make often. No ingredients past their prime or anything like that which s common when you have a menu that extends some six pages long. Lets check them out.
Newly Opened on Argyle street
Inside it's a nice clean space that looks and feels like many other Vietnamese restaurants around this way. Servers are extra polite and very happy to have you. The menu features some Viet classics and a few things you wont find everywhere. No pic but the pork chop plate was pure comfort. Perhaps the most interesting dish on the menu is the classic Vietnamese version of steak and eggs. This dish goes by the name Bo Ne. This dish comes served on a sizzling hot plate with strips of steak and grilled onions as well as two eggs over easy, corn, butter and a smear of foie gras. It's a glorious breakfast and Miss Saigon does a good one. I just wish the steak would've been a browned better but other than that this is a damn good way to start your day. Nice to see Argyle continue to grow.
