    Saigon Cafe

    Saigon Cafe is highly regarded as one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in town, and what is Vietnamese food without spring rolls! Tuck yourself in the cozy and clean space embellished with colourful lanterns with Civet Cat coffee by the side, a traditional cuppa. Crystal-clear sheets of rice paper encapsulate the shredded jicama, cucumber, and fresh lettuce then chopped and stacked like a mini-bouquet and smeared with spicy sauce. Another rendition is for cracking spring roll lovers, where the delightful deep-fried batons sit on a nest of fresh salad and topped with Vietnamese cold noodles then generously scattered with roasted nuts as well as fried pork.
