It was sunny for a few days there, wasn't it? Before this gloomy weather set in, I stopped into Flavaful Yogurt before doing a bit of shopping for a cookout the Missus was going to (I heard the Char Siu Chicken Wings did well). I'd seen the sign saying they were now serving Banh Mi back in June and feeling a bit peckish I decided to try out one of their Banh Mi.
I did kinda hesitate since the Dac Biet was priced at pretty hefty $3.95....sheesh four buck for a Banh Mi? PeterL had told me that the Banh Mi here were pretty good, but took a bit of time. Lord knows, the wait couldn't possibly be as long as I waited for a Banh Mi the last time I was in the area, right?
Actually, this took only five minutes....kinda helps that I was the only customer in the place. The sandwich was pretty hefty weight wise and landed with a thump on the little kiddy table out front.
You really can't tell how large this Banh Mi by my photos....
I'm thinking that maybe this is a better shot??
It just seemed like maybe a bit too much in terms of "stuff"........but was very filling.
I'm not quite sure if I enjoyed the pungent onions in the sandwich...though I generally love onions. The pate was very nice and funky, and there a good bit of it. The cucumber played an important role....it helped to cleanse my palate. Gladly, this wasn't over-mayo'd, and even though it's third-party bread, it was toasted well.....not too hard, but just a bit of crunch.
