Vietname Deli Takeout?

  • 4

We had dinner last night at 12th/Jackson area - not sure if it's called little saigon or little vietnam. Dinner was fine, but I have to admit that checking out a handful of vietnamese delis with their assorted hot table items looked way more interesting. Is there any advice on which have good offerings? Not looking for sandwiches recommendations, but specifically on the hot food takeout front. thanks.

  1. Seattle Deli has some hot food for take-out and so does the strip mall town favorite Saigon Deli- both are right around where you were last time- I like Saigon Deli the most (bring cash- the shirmp looked awesome last time I was there) and can't believe I let the storefront keep me from visiting for so long.

      Although I have not tried it myself, every time I am in Seattle Deli I see at least 1 or 2 customers buying some of the hot take-out food. Maybe this means it is worth a try.

    2. I definitely prefer Saigon Deli over Seattle Deli. The browned pork with the eggs are the best and they have a good variety of che ( the soupy desserts). The rice and black eyed peas with coconut milk are my mom's fave and I also like the green rice with the taro and coconut milk. If you get the prepackaged stuff (on styrofoam and wrapped in saran wrap) most of those are really fresh, really cheap, and really tasty.

      Saigon Vietnam Deli is also pretty good.

        I have only tried a few of the delicious looking offerings at Saigon Deli. as we usually get bhan mi and shrimp rolls, which are a perfect meal for the Mariners game down the hill.
