Son of Saigon - Authentic Vietnamese Cafe
If a crunchy-yet-fluffy banh mi stuffed with flavorful grilled pork is one of your favorite street food dishes, this is the place to go. It's located in Soi Thong Lo 25, and the menu boasts authentic recipes to honor the chef's mother, who was born and bred in Vietnam before moving her family to the US. What's more, this Saigon-style cafe with one of the most striking decorations also calls itself a Vietnamese grilled pork specialist, and it doesn't mess around when it comes to char-grilled pork. Besides, the chef-owner, Shaun, is constantly adding his childhood dishes to the menu to make sure his customers get to try something new every time they visit. Recently added and worth ordering today are his broken rice with grilled pork and duck egg meatloaf and his steamed rice rolls with Vietnamese pork sausage.
