Saigon Corner is located in North Quincy on Billings Rd. near the footbridge that crosses the train tracks between Wollaston and N. Quincy Red Line stations.
The menu says "A taste of Hong Kong." That's not Saigon.
Entering this place to pick up food has, at times, made me feel like a stranger walking into a saloon in an old western.
This has been one of my favorite dishes for a while now.
1. Hot Dog
2. Fried Egg
3. Tender Beef Filet
4. Tender Pork Chop
5. Delicious Black Pepper Sauce
6. Served over a bed of white rice. (Pictured here over a bed of lettuce.)
You can order it with varying levels of meat, but I always go for the all out version. You can also get the same dish with a couple of other sauces. The Curry was my original love before I ventured into the black pepper sauce.
This is only my second time substituting out the rice for a vegetable. The first time they put in Yow Choy which is somewhere between spinach and broccoli. This time they put in lettuce which actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The yow choy worked better though.
This one isn't really about the hot dog to me though. I do enjoy it, but I always eat the dog first and move up to the other more enjoyable things. Dog, egg, beef, pork. The sauce is what makes it good. Nice and spicy.
For take out "Chinese" food this is one of my definite favorites-- 5/5. The hot dog gets a 3/5, but that may be a stretch.
Special thanks to my (now former) boss who has treated me to this for lunch many times. A good choice for a last meal.
