I'm busy on a new review of what might actually be the answer to our plaintive cries for local Vietnamese food has opened in Bethany Beach. Located on Rt. 26 (Garfield Parkway), to the right of the WaWa, Zen Saigon is across from DiFebo's in the spot formerly occupied by Sabor (one of the worst-run restaurants I have ever had the displeasure of spending good money to review). Zen Saigon looks clean and seems to be well-managed, given that they have not even been open 2 weeks as of this posting.
Treasures such as summer rolls (goi cuon) and beef pho (2 versions) are on the menu, and both are quite good. There's a little bit of Thai thrown in too. I love Vietnamese food and it appears that owner/chef Kenny is serious about it. Scroll through the gallery for more images of the food. There will be a lot more when I post the review in a day or so.
I've already been a couple of times and so far the place rates 5 stars – including the service. Check their hours at (302) 616-1957.
