Best Of 2014: Vietnamese

While I'd like to say I'm an adventurous diner who is always trying new and different menu items, I've only actually ordered one dish at Saigon Café, many times over. The vegetable noodle bowl topped with grated cucumbers and carrots, along with generous handfuls of bean sprouts, lettuce and fresh cilantro, is perfect. I've had no reason to request anything else. And in one respect, I'm not alone in my blatant refusal to venture into unfamiliar territory. Indy readers have voted the downtown restaurant into the No. 1 Vietnamese spot every year since this category was introduced in 2003. — Darcie Mankell

Bites 2013: Vegetarian Bun

When you want it light, the bún chá giò is your choice. Soft rice noodles in a hearty broth and the essence of freshness with mint leaves, bean sprouts and cucumber pieces. Toss in some crisp onions and peanut crumbles for garnish and flavor enhancement. Oh, and there's a crunchy veggie egg roll on the side, too. ($8.45 lunch/$10.75 dinner)

Price: $$
