How is Cafe Dore holding up? That used to be my favorite banh mi




Hi Dan - I haven't had the banh mi at Cafe Dore in a while; though my sources tell me the Banh Mi Ba Chi is still a winnah! I gotta get back there when I have a chance.

Yeah, kinda mediocre Kat....though the Spam and Longanisa is a good combination.


Doesn't sound like this place will last longer than the others that occupied this spot...


Sounds similar to the short lived Baguette Bros on Convoy.


Thanks for the enjoyable review. I still like K sandwiches, but haven’t found much else too exciting.


I know we'll see.

Less hipster's more like Cali Banh Mi.

I'll keep on looking RD! ;o)

I second the Cafe Dore revisit! And K's gets the job done these days for a dac biet though their other offerings are nothing to write home about.

The tacos also look interesting. I'm a mayo guy so they don't look too bad - those tortillas on the other hand >_<


I think I mentioned about Banh Mi Blvd lol. I wasn't impressed with their sandwiches either, but remembered liking the drinks before.

There's a Vietnamese vegetarian restaurant that opened this year with most entrees for $5 over at Hoa Tu Bi Tam in City Heights. That location has gone through several owners.. Hopefully, this one can stay.


Go check them out Derek!

Thanks for the recommendation Elle! I did see that place - the turnover there is so fast that I missed the last two restaurants that were there!


Yes, go check out Hoa Tu Bi Tam! I hope they stay as well.


OK Phuong, I'm sold!
