Bún at Saigon Restaurant (Albuquerque, NM)

Pork and shrimp bún

For dinner, we headed over to Saigon Restaurant and ordered bún (☆☆½). It would have been a very good version if the noodles had been drained adequately after being removed from hot water. The result was a pool of water at the bottom of the bowl that diluted the nuoc cham that we like to pour over the noodles. This was a grievous oversight in our opinion that disproves the idea that it’s impossible to screw up a bún. Too bad because the pork slices were lean, flavorful and tender and the shrimp was good, too. The devil is in the details.
