Dinner at Saigon Cafe in Jersey City, NJ

We finally tried Saigon Cafe on Newark Ave in Jersey City.  Much nicer environment and everything tasted delicious and fresh.  It's a little more expensive than the other Vietnamese place we go to but it's a much nicer place and more pleasant to go to, plus it's walkable.  Glad we finally tried it out!
Goi Cuon - Summer Rolls: with lettuce, bean sprouts, mint leaves, pork and shrimp in soft rice paper with homemade peanut sauce.  Delicious and freshing

A special of the day - rice dumpling stuffed with pork

Inside of the dumpling.  Great light flavor and paired nicely with the pickled veggies

Crab meat fried rice special - delicious and hard not to eat all at once

Banh Hoi - fused rice vermicelli cakes - steamed thin angel-hair rice vermicelli nooddle cut into squares. Served with lettuce, mint leaves, ground peanuts, fried shallots,cucumbers, pickled carrots,fish dipping sauce and beef.  Like the bun I usually ordered but you can make little lettuce wraps like tacos.  Didn't heat up so great because the noodles were hard, but great fresh. I especially loved the fried shallots with it
