Miss Saigon has taken over the space of Shun Sushi on Forbes Street across from exit C of the Kennedy Town MTR Station.  Unless you can smell the grease from the constant frying of spring rolls or the hearty soup stock that is constantly boiling away in the back, don’t bother.  Miss Saigon is a case of don’t bother and keep walking.

The King of Pho at Miss Saigon.  It looked right but it lacked the taste of soup that has been boiling away for many hours, no depth in flavor.  My suggestion is to use a pressure cooker if you lack the time commitment to make hearty soup.

Miss Saigon, King Pho.

I was expecting lemon grass grilled pork, fresh herbs and a meaty spring roll.  I got a deep fried pork cutlet and lettuce with the same deep fried quality of the appetizer plate.  A photo of real lemon grass grilled pork below.

Miss Saigon, lemon grass grilled pork.  It’s deep fried.

best meal in Hanoi

I was expecting this – real lemon grass grilled pork.

I don’t think I will go back.  20% off for the time being but there’s a 10% service charge.  WTF.  At least hide the cash grab?

If you are wanting to venture into Kennedy Town for food, check to see if the restaurant is new.  If so, stay away.
