Sandwich Express – Vietnamese Bánh mì Deliciousness

March 30, 2010 Gourmet, Vietnam No Comments

What a Find! I recently discovered a Vietnamese sandwich shop in the valley that does Bánh mì right. I love that it looks like a hole in the wall kind of joint, and family-own/run. The lady at the counter seems a bit sassy (maybe because I paid in quarters), but I suppose that’s part of the charm.

Pho So 1: Com Tau Hu Ky

December 29, 2009 Gourmet, Living, Vietnam, World No Comments

On the morning after Christmas, some of us were craving pho, so I found a spot that had pretty good online reviews.

I ate steamed rice with shrimp paste wrapped in bean curd skin.

Though I didn’t order pho, I did get a bowl of the soup broth to complement my dish, and it was very tasty. The next time I’m out there, I’ll have to get a pho dac biet xe lua (maybe).
