Sawleaf is a Vietnamese restaurant in Irvine. You order here as you would at any modern fast-casual, while squinting at the menu marquee, verifying payment on a computer screen, and getting a number. You then find a seat in a chic room that’s far removed from the life-sized Vietnamese street-food scene that covers the walls. Yet on every table there’s still the usual cabal of Huy Fong’s Sriracha, hoisin sauce, and chile paste. But since Sawleaf has a business plan behind each detail, it features a few corporate-style touches. If you’re taking your pho to-go, Sawleaf’s young staff (no one there looks older than 30) package it neatly in cute, specially designed carriers with the broth separated from the noodles.
