The Banh for Me

Banh Mi has been my latest obsession. Saigon Sandwich in San Francisco totally started it. Chewy bread, crunchy sweet and spicy veggies and savory meat. It's a flavor explosion. And I love a good sandwich.

Here, at home, I'm yet to find the banh for me. I've tried Mr. Sandwich a couple times. Their bread could be better, but they stuff their sandwiches with a fair amount of goodies. I wasn't a fan of the house special, but their grilled pork is decent.

Being on our latest health kick, meals out have been rare, but we did grab a quick bite at Lee's Sandwich for dinner. We tried the grilled pork and pork meatball banh Mi. Their bread is fantastic! They are very light handed with the meat and veggies that fill it. I like a good ratio of meat, veggies to bread and Lee's fails here. The veggies didn't have the snap I like and the pork was pretty bland. It's a shame the filling fell short because the bread was so scrumptious the potential was there. Lee's is cheap, and open 24 hours so it does have that going for it.
