DETAILS
Elmwood Village favorite Saigon Café looks like your average American or Parisian café, with diners idly conversing at patio tables topped by green umbrellas, until you step inside and are greeted with a salutation in Vietnamese — a hint of what’s to come. The diverse Vietnamese and Thai menu features shrimp tempura and includes other winning starters such as fried bananas or sweet-and-sour soup. Entrées come in large portions, with standouts that include the omelet-like Vietnamese pancake, and caramel catfish. Also popular are stir-fries, which consist of your choice of sauce, vegetables and meat (seafood, beef or chicken). Ginger tea is the perfect accompaniment to your meal, and desserts include five-scoop fruit sorbets, with peach and mango the favorite flavors. Saigon Café can get particularly busy on weekends, so it’s best to call ahead for a table. Beer and wine available. Serving lunch and dinner daily. "Chef and co-owner Tai Truong has an exceptional story: Having emigrated from Vietnam at a young age, he has become a successful Buffalo restaurateur (he's co-owner and manager of the popular Saigon-Bangkok on Niagara Falls Boulevard as well as the more upscale venture, Tsunami on Kenmore Avenue). With an elegant, intimate atmosphere, Saigon Café is yet another success, serving a refreshing and tasteful array of pan-Asian classics on the Elmwood Strip."
