In my last blog I mentioned going out to eat Vietnamese sandwiches and got a couple of questions in response. If you've never had one, and find yourself near a Vietnamese neighborhood sandwich shop, stop in, they are really quite good.
The name of them is Banh mi. They start with a crunchy French type roll, (remember Vietnam was occupied by the French for a long time. Then layer on a swipe of pate, some spicy mayo, cilantro, slivered carrots, optional hot chillies such as jalapeno, and a meat filling. Roast or BBQ pork and roast chicken are popular. The meat is usually warm. They also do a vegetarian version. I think there might be a little sauce, but I'm not sure.
We've had them in a couple of places and they are always very inexpensive. The ones we had on Wednesday cost all of $2.50 each. One plus my black pearl drink and a small desert were enough for me, and Craig had two sandwiches and a bottle of water and was satisfied. (dinner for two at less than $15)
A nice change from hamburgers or Sub sandwiches when you are out and about.
