Looking for some great pho or Vietnamese food? Look no further than Saikyo Vietnamese Restaurant in Destin, Florida. They are amazing. They’re located in the shopping center next to Destin’s Wal-Mart, behind Hooters. I’ll tell you what I order, give you some good price averages, and talk about the signature dish: Pho. You’ll get enough information from this article to decide if you’re actually going to go eat at Saikyo Vietnamese Restaurant.
The prices here are fairly average for Okaloosa County’s Asian food restaurants. You can get a heaping bowl of pho for eight dollars and fifty cents. The other stuff on the menu tends to be a little pricier, but still well within reason. Ten to fifteen dollars a piece for full meals that aren’t completely contained within a bowl.
What I Order
I keep it fairly simple when I eat here. I usually order a P6 and a bowl of edamame. P6 is a bowl of pho with beef in various forms, and a bunch of veggies. Edamame isn’t really something that I would consider Vietnamese fare, but it is really tasty. It’s a great appetizer, and although I order it every time, I usually don’t eat all of my pho, so you can definitely get full off of a eight fifty bowl of pho.
Pho is great. Pho is a Vietnamese soup made with rice noodles, with meats, vegetables and you put in the sauces yourself. Usually, spicy chili sauces and soy sauce or hoison sauce go into the pho, and you put it in however much you want. The meats are usually meat balls, meat tenders, and rare strips of meat that get cooked by putting them into the hot soup. It’s really a tasty soup.
You get the point by now. Saikyo Vietnamese Restaurant has awesome pho at good prices, and average prices for their other dishes. I recommend that you order the P6, and you’ll definitely get more than enough food to satisfy your hunger. Now get out there and get some pho!
