Having undergone an extensive renovation in 2011, Saigon's attractive exterior now compliments the great Thai and Vietnamese food found inside. Plentiful platters of pad thai and other specialties are beloved by locals. Start off your meal with the eggplant in garlic sauce, or maybe a steaming bowl of tom yum soup. When it comes to entrees, the pad sam rot—lightly fried strips of beef or chicken served in a mouth-watering red chili sauce with a side of rice—is highly recommended, as are many of the noodle dishes. For dessert, be sure to save room for the fried bananas smothered in honey.
