Saigon Kitchen - San Jose

Had dinner there the other night.
The seven courses of beef was good though they brought almost all the food at once. The porridge was the standout.
The nine courses of fish was a fun variation, all the usual bo 7 mon preparations only with fish, plus some extras. Again, the porridge was the standout. Fried minature egg rolls were dry and the only dish of the 16 that I didn't like.
The other house specialty is whole fried catfish, which is big enough to make a whole dinner for two or more. Lots of people were getting that and it looked great, I'd try that next time.

A post today mentioned Saigon Kitchen, wondering if anyone has updates. I was there myself in 2008 to try the hu tieu nam vang that I described as Nice, upscale version with attractively cut squid, no hulking pork bones but instead a couple baby back rib segments, gorgeous giant prawns perfectly cooked and flecked with black pepper on this photo caption.
