I love all types of food.....and I will try anything twice...except olives and beets.....
But when it comes to my favorite restaurant in the entire world...one would think that as an American, it would be a burger place....as a Southerner, it would be a bbq joint....and as a Jew, a deil....
However....my favorite restaurant in the ENTIRE world...hands down, no questions asked, undisputed....is a hole-in-the-wall, run down Vietnamese restaurant in Memphis named Saigon Le.
I love Saigon Le. I am truly, madly, deeply, in love with Saigon Le with all my mind, body, and soul....and my family doesnt even like it. Let me state for the record...I love Saigon Le. I am truly, madly, deeply, in love with Saigon Le with all my mind, body, and soul.
This place has burned down 3 times, leaving the Vietnamese family who owns it homeless three times, and each time, its loyal patrons, including my loving grandfather, would help give to rebuild Saigon Le from the ashes.
This plaee is legit...dont go for the ambiance, decor, or service...but for the food. This place has won countless "best of", "favorite", and food awards from local and national publications.
This place would be where my last meal comes from...and here is my last meal menu....the menu I recommend to all people who go...
Albert's favorite meal of all time:
-Order of Saigon Rolls...ten perfectly cooked mini egg rolls that you wrap in fresh lettuce and dip in fish sauce
-Order of Birds Nest....ten perfectly fried mini egg rolls with a different batter than siagon rolls that you wrap in lettuce and dip in fish sauce
-Veggie Egg Foo Yong...best egg foo yong in America according to my dad
-1/2 AND 1/2 MUSSELS....off the menu item..MINDBLOWING
-Chicken Lo Mein
PERFECTION IN EVERY WAY!!!
BEFORE YOU GO TO ALL THE BBQ AND FRIED CHICKEN MECCAS IN MEMPHIS...SAIGON LE MUST BE YOUR FIRST STOP.
