SAIs VIETNAMESE RESTAURANT, San Francisco: Beating the City Fog with Pho Bo
The City’s fog can bite you in the a** sometimes, especially at Market Street.
And for anyone who hasn’t been to San Francisco yet, you’ll notice that restaurants close at 7pm at the very latest unless you’re at Mission Street where watering holes and bars run abundant.
Otherwise on Market Street, places to eat can get scarce around 8pm even when it’s appears broad in daylight. But really, it’s just because of the daylight savings time.
My friend and I were just going up and down Market Street looking for something better than Chipotle and McDonald’s. And then she really craved for a nice bowl of Pho Bo.
Call it a streak of luck as we found SAIs Vietnamese Restaurant on Google and it happens to be open at 8:00pm.
We thought it would be near but in San Francisco, a couple of blocks away is going to be a workout.
So we got ourselves a nice bowl of Pho Bo for $11.00. I wanted to get some Bi Cuon or Pork Spring Rolls because it’s the only Vietnamese food I wanted to eat.
To be honest the broth was a bit bland and it was too spicy. But you can’t blame them as I asked mine to be super spicy. *evil laugh*
I don’t think America is the best place to eat Asian cuisine, so maybe just stick to American food.
Oh but it warmed our tummies afterwards. And I was happy to go home full.
We hailed Lyft so we can get back to our Airbnb near Geary Street. Then I forgot I left my water bottle at Sais. It wasn’t just any water bottle. It’s the water bottle Google gave me for the I/O event. FML.
P.S. I called them and picked it up the following Saturday morning. Glad they kept it! 5 Golden Stars for that!
