Sawtooth- Secret Vietnamese on Randolph St.

I like Sawtooth.  I’ve been a few times since it’s in my ‘hood.  It’s on Randolph but on the side… closer to Ashland… in the same block as BellyQ (which just started lunch, BTW).  It’s a swanky and modern vibe with some seriously tasty food.

The menu at Sawtooth is huge and there are a ton of light options, which I always appreciate.  The play on sweet, acidic and spicy is one of the reasons I love Vietnamese food and this place has it all goin’ on.  Here are a few examples:

Fried Spring Rolls

Seafood and Lotus Stem Salad

Shrimp & Veggies

Smoked Eggplant with Basil and a Sweet Lime Fish Sauce

I’ve also had the Saigon-style crepe and the the beef pho, both of which are fab.  There’s a ton of other stuff I want to try like the duck salad with mint, peanuts and shallots, claypot catfish, seafood glass noodles & green papaya salad.  Check out the menu for yourself.  I’ll be back soon!
