The chefs at Miss Sai Gon Bar & Grill handcraft exotic, authentic Vietnamese dishes with fresh and healthful ingredients. Diners can peruse the [menu](https://groupon.s3.amazonaws.com/sponsorship-imgs/albuquerque/Miss%20Sai%20Gon%20Menu.pdf) before electing one of eight starter options, including spring rolls stuffed with pork sausage and six fried chicken wings swimming in fish sauce. Deep-fried egg noodles form a crispy bed for deep-fried shrimp, pork, beef, or chicken in a savory gravy sauce, which facilitates chopstick practice for twirling noodles and making shadow-puppet giraffes. Polychromatic slices of beef, basil, and bean sprouts add color to a warm, clear beef broth in a bowl of beef pho soup. A spread of vegetarian options sates herbivores with selections such as crispy egg noodles with tofu and vegetables, stir-fried lemongrass chili tofu dished with rice vermicelli, and a stir fry fortified with imitation beef harvested from a soybean dressed in a cow costume. Diners douse their plates with a soda or mixed drink from the restaurant's full-service bar. Miss Sai Gon's casual, nature-inspired interior features warm, ruddy tones and an accent rock wall, which serves as both an aesthetic embellishment and a scaled-down mountain.
Miss Sai Gon Bar & Grill
Servers clad in traditional Vietnamese dresses escort guests to linen-topped tables inside Miss Sai Gon Bar & Grill’s expansive two-story dining room. Behind the scenes, chefs pair stir-fried shrimp with rice cooked in a hot clay pot and tuck beef inside piles of fried rice noodles. Spicy pho broth topped with thin slices of beef is served as sunlight floods in through the floor-to-ceiling windows and potted plants, scattered throughout the space, quietly keep on keeping on. On the second level, a natural-stone wall complements the slate flooring and wood tabletops. For those who are really, really popular, chefs can prepare meals en masse for parties of up to 400 inside the dining room, which also includes a dance floor and professional stage.
