There is a wonderful Vietnamese restaurant in Belleville, IL. It’s called “SAIGON” and the chef there is a master!
The Dear Husband and I love Vietnamese food and travel far and wide to try other places, but we always compare it to our local place, and it just doesn’t get any better then Saigon. The Pho soup is a favorite and the only place that seems to get it right.
The Lemongrass beef roll-ups, which you do yourself at the table is enough for two. I always order a vermicelli dish of pork, beef & shrimp with lots of vegetables. It’s fresh and satisfying! (#117)
Vietnamese food is not spicy. It’s delicate and flavorful in a subtle way. Texture is important, as well as the sauces used.
Honestly, this place should be the top place in Belleville, it’s that’s good!
