'225 Dine': Saigon Noodles offers myriad tastes of Vietnam
Named one of Acadiana's Best New Restaurants by the Acadiana Profile, and thus keeping company with the likes of Donald Link's Cochon, Saigon Noodles has already earned a loyal following in Lafayette. Now its owners, brothers Danny and Chris Nguyen, have brought the popular Vietnamese restaurant to Baton Rouge in a location on the corner of Florida Boulevard and Sherwood Forest. An expansive menu of purely Vietnamese dishes—ranging from the ever-popular noodle soup pho to specialties like a hearty beef soup called bun bo hue and a noodle bowl with rolls and toppings as diverse as sugarcane shrimp and beef short ribs called bun cha gio—has proved incredibly popular at both locations. Detailed menu descriptions and lush pictures ensure that even newcomers to Vietnamese food will be able to select a meal with ease, and a huge selection of vegetarian dishes means almost anyone can find something to eat on the menu. Saigon Noodles also has gone beyond simple spring rolls to create signature appetizers like the autumn, winter and summer rolls.
