New Saigon Restaurant Review: Now known as New Saigon, the former Saigon Hut has relocated and has a new look, but it still serves up Vietnamese fare in a neighborhood buzzing with taquerias, an espresso bar and Italian restaurants. Expect to encounter the same no-frills atmosphere at this sole Vietnamese spot on the East Side of the tunnel. The menu may be typical, but dishes like pho, shrimp salad (goi tom), fresh rolls (goi cuon) and various rice vermicelli bowls (bun) boast clean, often tangy flavors, plenty of herbs and fancifully cut vegetables. Vietnamese-style drip coffee is made with the chicory-laced French Market brand from New Orleans, which, when poured over a base of sweetened condensed milk, turns into a fine cup. Poured over ice, it’s even better.
