Vietnamese Food @ Little Saigon, Hamilton

On our way back from Niagara Falls we met up with Helena for some Vietnamese Food at Little Saigon in Hamilton. The restaurant serves up a variety of your typical Vietnamese Food that included Bun (Vermicelli), Pho (Noodle Soup), Spring Rolls, Vietnamese Stir Fried Dishes and also has some Thai Inspired Dishes.

Shrimp Roll wrapped with Rice Crepe

The Shrimp Roll was quite good with generous filling of prawns and the Rice Crepe soft. The peanut dipping sauce was also quite good

Thai-Style Cuttle-Fish Salad

I wouldn’t call this a Thai Dish but it was quite good. The sauce tasted like a mixture of Ketchup, Chili Sauce and Black Pepper. It actually went quite well with the tender Cuttle Fish

Grilled Chicken Kebab

Recommended by our order taker, their Kebab was very good. It had nice char marks giving it a crispy exterior but was very tender. The kebab was seasoned just right and had a little heat to it

Grilled Beef, Spring Roll, Sugar Cane Shrimp with Rice Vermicelli

The Grilled Beef was very tender and flavorful and the fish based dressing on the vermicelli was also quite good. The Spring Roll seemed more like a Chinese Spring Roll than the typical Vietnamese Spring Roll that is usually wrapped with Rice Paper

Beef Noodle Soup

The Beef Noodle Soup consisted of Raw Beef, Cooked Beef, Beef Tendon and Beef Tripe. The soup was quite flavorful and the raw beef was very soft.

The food was definitely satisfying after our long trip in Niagara Falls. The service was excellent with our Tea Pot constantly refilled and our waiter always smiling when serving us.

It is a good food presentation and a fair review. However, after trying this restaurant, I thought the food rating should be higher in my opinion. Anyway, thank you as we now have another restaurant on our list to visit regularly
