Saigon, Birmensdorferstrasse, Zurich

Selbstgemachte Tofu-Wanton

Poulet mit Ingwer und Reis

Saigon opened a new place on Birmensdorfer- strasse next to the Schmiede Wiedikon. It used to be a cafe and now serves vietnamese food. There seems to be a bit of a cluster of Vietnam themed restaurants in Wiedikon. I went for lunch and started with some Tofu Wantons with sweet chili sauce. They were homemade and nicely seasoned, but I would have preferred some other filling than tofu. Everynow and then I give it a shot, but my sympathy for vegan lifestyles is on the same level as my sympathy for dogs in restaurants. Main course was chicken with ginger and rice, nice taste and nice size dportion. I liked that a lot of the dishes are homemade. Comparing it to the other Vietnamese places in Zurich it has the nicest interior but lacks something to clearly differentiate it in terms of food. Prices:

    This place isn’t new, in fact it’s the original petit saigon, opened long before the trying to be more stylish saigon on Sihlstrasse. The places are run by mother and daughter, take a guess who’s where…
