Pho Saigon - Lee, Massachusetts

Rural Intelligence FoodPho Saigon, a small and simple Vietnamese restaurant on a side street in downtown Lee, isn’t one of those restaurants that makes for an evening’s entertainment. But luckily, it is a great place to stop after shopping at the Lee Outlets or on your way to nearby Shakespeare & Company or the Berkshire Theatre Festival. You would be seriously remiss if you did not order the appetizer crepe, and it’s hard to imagine a soul that would not be warmed by a meal-sized bowl of spicy beef-and-lemongrass soup with vermicelli (photo) or chicken-and-shrimp noodle soup (both $9.95) which are served with plates of cool, freshcondiments—bean sprouts, fresh basil, sliced lime and chile peppers. And there’s large selection of sauteed noodle dishes and grilled meats ($10.95 to $19.95) and vegetarian entrees so even finicky eaters should find something they want to order.
