Saigon Hut’s culinary wizards quickly sate the hungry roars of stomach goblins by composing authentic Vietnamese soup bowls, meat dishes, and sandwiches from its fresh-ingredient-boasting menu. Set off on eastbound gustatory sojourns with an assortment of appetizers such as layered green onion cakes ($2.25). Spoons get to live out their Cousteau-centric dreams as they dive into a spicy seafood noodle bowl ($9.45) to scoop shrimp, fish balls, crabsticks, and squid from the piquant broth. A Saigon Hut sandwich ($5.95) swaddles grilled beef, chicken, or pork in a bun to liberate hands from the tyranny of utensils, and a grilled pork chop ($8.45) makes the arduous voyage from kitchen to stomach accompanied by a steadfast side of Vietnamese quiche. Eaters can quaff a hot or iced Vietnamese coffee ($3.25) as the dining room’s lime-green accented wall reenergizes lethargic peepers with an ocular pep-talk, and green hanging lamps add a sleek feel to feeding frenzies.
