I will drive up there for bot chien. Back in Saigon I had it w/ soy sauce. Can't wait to try it w/ fish sauce.


Hi YY - Let me know what you think! Also, before you go get in touch with me; there's another place close by that I think you'd like.


I've had banh bot chien at K Sandwiches - not bad, but it was packaged. I think Tan Ky Mi Ga serves it too, but Kang Loc's version looks yummier.


You know Sandy, thinknig it over....I might have seen it at Tan Ky Mi Gia....


Next time all you have to do is tell them you want "Xi quach". Not sure of spelling. No one ever ask me to spell it. Even if you do not pronounce it correctly. They will figure it out. Sorry for such a short trip. You are right about I am not eating as much as I used to. It would be nice if we could have invited CP and Elmo. Maybe next time.


It is not fish sauce but rather a light soy with a touch of vinegar.


Hey Beach - It was great seeing you. Hopefully, it won't be as long next time! Thanks again for a great time.


Kirk, I stopped by Kang Lac over the weekend in hopes of finding banh bot chien. The place looks like a pastry bakery (cupcakes in the display case), and when I asked about banh bot chien, the gal gave me a puzzled look. Maybe I butchered the pronunciation, but I wonder if Kang Lac has changed hands two years later. Perhaps you can ask Beach about Kang Lac, and whether there is another place in Little Saigon that has (good) banh bot chien.


I'll check it out Sandy - but the dish was off the sit down menu.
