Another visit to Saigon Grill, and this time, a Vietnamese friend recommended the egg noodles. I ordered the “special”, which is egg noodle soup with a pork broth base, char-siu style sliced pork, shrimp, squid, and imitation crab. They also provided an additional plate of sprouts, jalapenos, cilantro, and lime for you to add if you want, just like pho.
I liked their egg noodles better than their pho – the noodles had the right texture, and the soup had more flavor than their pho soup (I think it was from the celery). I’m not a big fan of squid, but the char-siu style sliced pork was very tasty.
If you’re in the mood for noodle soup, then you should definitely try something from the egg noodle section of the menu over the pho.
