Having only been open for a little over a month, Midtown’s brand-new Vietnamese café Saigon House has embodied freshness in a unique, and most importantly, utterly delicious way.
The brainchild of Duc Dinh and chef Vu Tuan Anh, the pair sought to take on a new challenge after the success of their Pearland-based Wrap & Roll eatery. Armed with elements from that endeavor, the result is a menu that fuses classic Vietnamese fare with new-school concepts and techniques implemented in everything from the savory entrees down to the fresh-pressed fruit teas.
Take the Spreggroll, for instance---an unorthodox marriage of the spring roll and the egg roll, the appetizer somehow manages to simultaneously exemplify both an expert creativity and a duh-why-didn’t-I-think-of-that simplicity. Being addictively scrumptious and feather-light on the stomach can certainly only bolster the Spreggroll’s case as a fan favorite, and it’s only the tip of the iceberg in terms of the delectable offerings the menu has available.
