JS

How funny. We both have reviews of K Sandwiches today.

Are you following me around?

elmomonster

A Lee's clone eh? Doesn't sound too bad. More banh mi is better than too few, I always say.

Kirk,

Hmmm Jo and I had just had Bahn Mi yesterday for lunch. The second visit pictures looks better. I am not impressed with Lee Sandwhiches. I will have to keep my eyes peeled for K sanwhiches. Thanks

clare eats

OOoh Bahn Mi!!!!

mmmmmm it is lunch time,

ACK now I have a craving!!!

Kirk

Hi JS - Wow, let me check...wow, that's funny, I pre-scheduled this to post on Sunday - what are the odds. I should ask you the same, didn't we have a little Chowhound post on 09/12?

hehehe - wait I need my commission! LOL!

Hi elmo - Forgot to mention, no mayo on the Banh Mi type sandwiches. There were some "rumors" that this place was put on the "fast-track" when it was thought that Lee's was going to open in San Diego! More intrigue...

Hi Mills - If you had Lee's, I think you've had K's.

Hi Clare - Oh-uh Banh Mi attack, you'll need to take care of that ASAP.

ed

Hey that last dac biet looks pretty tasty - a lot of meats. I could sure use a banh me joint closer than 180 miles.

Kirk

Hi Ed - Maybe we need to replace that 180 miles to San Diego sign with 180 miles to Banh Mi!!!!

Rachel

Wow banh mi here for around $2 are unheard of. They start at $3.5 :( Hope Aus isn't going the way of europe in the way of expensive food. And the banh mi here are all about 6-8 inches long only *sigh* I think I would be happy even with K or Lees here (cowra). Some banh mi is better than none. Also we don't have that many different kinds. We only have pork, chicken of veg only and the veg has no tofu things only the pickels, cucumber, lettuce. I really need to move to the US. My tastebuds are demanding it.

LOL I need a sign too as to how many kms to Banh Mi :)
Hehe I liked how you put the photo of the ruler in for evidence. Its kinda like CSI ;)

Sounds like you've got a pretty cool job. Very important too it sounds like. Do you enjoy it?

Hi Rachel - Most Banh Mi are around $2.50(US - I'm going to start having to post like Reid from now on). So let's see how Km to Banh Mi from Sydney? Most Banh Mi here are about the same length as in your neck of the woods. I was just wondering how long it really was. My work is fine, not really important, I've been doing this "type" of work either as a prgorammer or Consultant for about 16 years now.

Candice

Hi Kirk - maybe I'll have to give K Sandwiches another chance. I was there about a month ago and was disappointed in the quality of the bread. I bought a loaf to take home and it was mealy and mushy. I wasn't impressed with the filling either - although I didn't expect much for $2!

Kirk

Hi Candice - Can't really hurt to try it again. So long you don't have to go out of your way. After all, in this day and age, you could spend more for gas then your sandwich.

Annie

did you ever get sick again after the first visit?? food poisoning is a big no-no for me!

Kirk

Hi Annie - It wasn't food poisoning, no emesis, no nausea, just the other thing....you know, right? LOL!

Rachel

Lots of Banh mi in Sydney kirk, sory about the double post. Not sure what happened. Just no banh mi in rural Cowra (306 kms from sydney) but you start to see a distinct lack of banh mi anywhere form 40 kms out of sydney :(

Jack

Sounds like my second visit...very much improved over the first. I didn't know about the 6am opening - that's good to know.

Kirk

Hi Rachel - Don't worry about it. I'll fix it when I have a chance. So 266 Km to Banh Mi....

Hey Jack - Banh Mi, it's not just for breakfast anymore! :o)

Pam

Hey Kirk,

I love that you have the blue plastic ruler with the tape around the middle measuring the bahn mi! Classic!

Kirk

Hi Pam - I was looking for a pocket-protector and a compass, but couldn't find one!

Reid

Hi Kirk,

I had my favorite lemongrass chicken bahn mi at Ba-Le today. These options look a bit more interesting though. I think I'm going to try something new the next time I'm at Ba-Le. It's nice to know that places like this are getting better as serving their customers.
