Review: Savor Saigon (Fairless Hills, PA)

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.

You all know that I have an obsession with Vietnamese food – papaya and/or lotus root salads in particular. Here are some of my past papaya and lotus enjoyments:

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!

    Is pizza a cuisine? If so, that’s my favorite ;)

    The Vietnamese food looks awesome though!

    Maggie,
    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!
