Soup's on at Sai Gon

While we've become big fans of the Thai and Vietnamese food at Sai Gon Cuisine on Cantrell Road, their great daily lunch specials -- big entree, steamed or fried rice, egg roll and a small bowl of soup, all for $5.99 --  have turned us into the John the Baptist of their soups. These days, we just forgo everything but the bowl of steaming goodness that is their soup of the day.

We've tried three of their offerings so far: egg drop, hot and sour and chicken vegetable. Every one is, in a word, incredible. By this reviewer's way of thinking, they might be best in town. Trust us when we say: Their broth-based kung-fu is strong.

Best of all, for six bucks, they'll bring you a bowl that looks like the hub cap from a farm implement; more of a lidless tureen, really; a bowl so big that we guarantee your first thought will be that there is no way in hell you'll be able to even approach eating it all -- which is okay, given that they've got really big to-go cups (or you can always get a second spooner involved if you're not worried about germs). Spicy, complex, delectable, swimming with veggies and bits of chicken, they are what soup should be, and especially recommended if you're feeling poorly from a cold or flu.

Sai Gon Cuisine soups: they have the technology. They can rebuild you. Stop in soon.
