All Asian food is not created equal. Take Saigon Restaurant. With a focus on steamed vegetables, seafood and broth-based soups, you’ll find a variety of healthy options for lunch and dinner when you venture beyond the comfort zone of chicken fried rice.

Offering traditional Southern Vietnamese cuisine like Pho (noodle soup), Mi Xao Gion Dac Biet (pictured), and Hai San Xao Sate (Spicy Seafood), manager Thao Pham and her family – dad, mom and six siblings – find joy in sharing their native, generations-old dishes with their clientele. Trained by their grandmother and mother, the family makes each meal fresh and from scratch, spending 10 to 12 hours slow-cooking the soup alone. You’re sure to experience a visual and literal feast with every order.

Saigon Restaurant 2909 I-40 West, 373.3456

Open Monday through Thursday 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 10 a.m.-12 a.m.; Sunday 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
