I need to give a shout out and thanks to my favorite food writer here in town - Chow, Baby. Never before had I tried the bahn mi - the sliced pork sandwich with carrots, daikon and cilantro - at a Vietnamese restaurant. I rarely venture away from pho. However, in a recent article she mentioned that most places sell these sandwiches for about $3. I'm cheap. So is that.
Now, thanks to Chow, Baby, I can eat spring rolls, iced green tea, a bahn mi, and still have change to tip the waiter for about ten bucks.
