A mix of delicious food. The duck in the picture (that is drenched in sauce and surrounded by Bok Choy, that was my most recent dinner on a recent trip to NYC. The meal was from a place where I am a regular, Saigon 48. It’s a day later and I can still taste the moistness of the duck. I can still picture the way the meat slid right off the bone. I can still taste the mild spiciness.
Ordering that duck was the first time I strayed from my regular meal at Saigon 48. Normally I get the shrimp-mango. But, let me tell you, I was not disappointed with the change. I think I finally have a new menu favorite. And, guess what! Since I ordered it for lunch, it was only 7.95. So college kids, don’t hesitate. You know if you are paying a visit to New York or live there, this is a place that is worth checking out.
On the other hand, the other meat pictured, with the sauce and the raw vegetables, that was my mothers meal. She loved it. And I have had some of her pork chops, and even I can vouch for their deliciousness. They are cooked well, and are nice and tender.
