Saigon Le Restaurant Review: Saigon Le is a standout among Memphis’ Little Vietnam area restaurants. Especially beloved are the bird’s nest egg rolls (shrimp and pork served with vegetables and fish sauce). Soups feature all the traditional offerings, including several varieties of beef pho and a catfish soup. There are plenty of meat-heavy dishes, such as sliced beef tenderloin with lemon grass and vermicelli. Vegetarians revel in the vast list of meat-free options --- lemon grass tofu would impress even the most diehard meat eater, and the barbecue wheat gluten is hearty, savory and sweet. Dessert is not an option at Saigon Le, but if they have fresh fruit, they’ll note it as a special. No wine is served, but the decent selection of Asian beers includes Japan’s Sapporo and Vietnam’s 333.
