In the heart of Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, is a mecca that Bobby and have trekked to twice. It’s Savor Saigon, and it is the best Vietnamese food that I have found on the east coast.

This time my sister and I decided to split two (vegetarian) dishes so that we could sample more things. We also got some appetizers for the entire table…
First up: fresh vegetarian summer rolls (served cold). These are fried tofu, vermicelli noodles, mint, lettuce, and carrot wrapped in rice paper. They come with a peanutty dipping sauce. We each had half of a roll. They were good…
But not as good as the fried spring rolls! These were not vegetarian – they had pork and other random things inside. I dipped them in the standard Vietnamese dipping sauce (fish sauce, sugar,water, vinegar I think). They were awesome. My vegan sister passed on them.
Julia and I split a lotus root salad with fried tofu (vegetarian/vegan). It had lotus root, carrots, and fried tofu. Very yummy.
We also split the very yummy Vietnamese Pad Thai (vegetarian):
This had noodles, tofu, egg, broccoli, mushrooms, and other veggies I am forgetting. It was a little bit different from regular pad thai – less peanutty, but still very good. It was topped with peanuts though!
My picks of the night – the lotus root salad and the fried spring rolls.
What’s your favorite cuisine? Mine is most definitely Vietnamese! I’m looking for a good (cheap) place in New York now… ideas/tips? I can’t find anything as good as the California Vietnamese places.

I love Mexican, Asian, and Italian – I can never pick a favorite! Those summer rolls look so beautiful, I love how you can see the fillings through the thin wrapping! I need to try lotus root still!
oh… these look amazing!!! My favorite cuisine is definitely Vietnamese, followed by japanese and korean! 🙂
Is pizza a cuisine? If so, that’s my favorite 😉
The Vietnamese food looks awesome though!
Definitely in Chinatown. Banh mi are so cheap too.
Your cookies in your last post looked so good. You really can’t go wrong with bananas, oats, and chocolate all in recipe. 🙂
I had a really bad experience with Vietnamese, but I need to give it another try. The veggie dish I ordered tasted like it came straight from the freezer. I think I just need to find a good restaurant. Those summer rolls looked amazing. So fresh!
my fav cuisine was Italian but I have been expanding my horizons. your post made my stomach growl
That all looks and sounds delicious! I have never had Vietnamese food – I know, I should get out more! Thanks for the review… not too far from my neck of the woods!
Mine is definitely Japanese. I just found your blog and I love it. Check out mine? =]
