I have heard of this Vietnamese sandwich before called and Banh Mi, but I honestly never thought twice about it. There were too many other things stealing my attention in Vietnamese Restaurants - Pho, Vermicelli and the like. However, on our way home from church last week, Bill and I decided to try something new, and what we discovered was nothing short of delicious!
Perfectly balanced flavors, incredibly fresh, and all of my favorite ingredients made this a new favorite. Fresh chilies (I asked for extra of course), cilantro, pickled carrots, pork, scrambled eggs, onions, and a special sauce makes such a great final product. I just can't stop thinking about it!
I try to learn something new everyday, and this day what I found out was when people recommend something to you over and over again, you should probably give it a try and not put it off! I kept saying, "Why didn't we try this sooner?"
So as you go into your weekend, don't go get the same thing you always get, try something new! And then tell me about it :)
Wednesday, I tried octopus sashimi. It was amazing.
