Ok, I admit it. Matt and I are foodies. When we can, we love to go out to eat. Which isn’t very often, admittedly. Or we end up at that gastronomic palace “Cici’s” for all-you-can-eat pizza cheapness. But we decided a long time ago to track some of the local Naples and Fort Myers restaurants that we love Starting this week I hope to keep a weekly update on restaurants in this area. Today we start with Miss Saigon.
Miss Saigon is Vietnamese at its finest. This hole-in-the-wall restaurant seats fewer than 30 people at a time (although they will fit you in where they can), but the food is phenomenal. If you haven’t tried Vietnamese food, Miss Saigon will make you a believer. They have everything from traditional pho to sauteed vegetable and meat dishes and bowls. My personal favorite is to start with the spring rolls, which come with a peanut sauce. Then I get the sauteed veggies and tofu with yellow noodles. Matt gets the pork bowl, which comes with lettuce, cabbage, pork, white noodles, and a really special sauce. The best part is the price. Two of us can eat there for under $30, and that includes an appetizer and a tip. It’s located on the east side of US 41 between Golden Gate Parkway and Pine Ridge Road. Make it a date and try it out. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
