Saigon City: Authentic Vietnamese Cruisine

So we were in San Mateo on Monday so that I could get an adjustment from Andrea’s chiropractor, Dr. Anthony Nguyen at Back in Shape Chiropractic. We were in the mood for some Vietnamese sandwiches, so I did a search on Yelp.com and Saigon City came up as highly recommended.

After the adjustment, we walked to Saigon City, which is close to Back in Shape; 3 blocks. They are located at 418 East 3rd Avenue in San Mateo. The place is decent size, the dining room can comfortable seat about 30-40 people. The place is kept clean and presentable.

There wasn’t any wait time to be seated as the restaurant hardly had any patrons; probably because it’s a holiday although we arrived around 5PM, dinner time. The menu has ample selection, but we were only interested in the Vietnamese sandwiches. The price is a bit steep: $2.75 per roll versus San Jose, $1.50-$1.75. We ordered (1) chicken, (2) Vietnamese hams, and (1) grilled pork sandwiches. Everything tasted good. They gave a decent amount of meat with vegetables, but definitely doesn’t hold a candle to the Vietnamese sandwiches in San Jose where for $1.50-$1.75 you get overflowing meat and vegetables. We would probably order from here again and maybe try a few other dishes here next time. They are open everyday from 11:30AM to 9:30PM.

There also is deli next to Back in Shape that charges $4 per Vietnamese sandwich…
