Ah, the Banh Mi. We decided to outsource this one and go to a restaurant that the Vicomtesse and I were already acquainted with. Best Baguette. It’s not just a clever name.
One of the Banh Mi’s many virtues is that it is HELLA cheap. A generously sized baguette stuffed with all manner of delicious pork-based meats, topped with daikon, carrot, jalapeno, cilantro, and mayonnaise is like $2.50. (we love us some mayonnaise)
Please, no predictions necessary. We knew this was going to be amazing. 100% certain. And we were not wrong…oh no.
Well, in this case, there was no preparation as we are incapable of making a Banh Mi as delicious as the $4 ones that Best Baguette offers. They bake their bread hourly, people, holy. crap. so. good.
The Vicomtesse ordered a pork meatball variety, and I opted for the house special with Vietnamese Ham and Pate and probably some other stuff (because I fear no organ meats). We both loaded up on the cilantro and jalapenos.
Accompanied by some delicious iced coffees, this really was an ideal dinner. And so economical! I mean, look at how substantial this sandwich is:
Needless to say, they went quickly.
We left sated, and with mouths aflame from the jalapenos.
V: Perfect and magical.
E: What she said.
Final Question: Do you immediately want to eat another of this sandwich?
