I have to admit I've been here before. I thought it would qualify as a good entry because I grabbed some great photos. Its a banh mi (sandwich) place right outside my apartment. They are located all over the city. Anyone with a sidewalk can operate one of these. The bread is made fresh daily. They might get that skill from the French colonial era. I don’t know where it comes from, but I have seen a guy on a motorbike with thousands of rolls before #stuffonthebackofbikes.
The lady who operates this stand knows me pretty well by now. I don't like the tumultuous spicy peppers , but I do enjoy the spicy sauce. Add 3 fried eggs, tomato, cucumber basil and you’ve got yourself a great way to power through your day. This meal will fill you up for about 5 hours.
Total cost: $1
I love these noodles. Absolutely one of my favorite meals in Asia. These arms length, white strands of rice noodle are filling and delicious when mixed with some homemade sauce. Almost all the food on the street is home cooked. Usually it’s a small family operating the business serving the everyday “Nguyen.” I’m not a big fan of the cross section of pig leg being thrown into my noodle soup, but that’s my fault for not being clear. What might freak some of you out even more is that it’s mostly just the skin that is ate and you can usually see a few hair follicles on there. I did nibble at it, but it was more tiring to eat than rewarding in flavor. I put it on the side of my plate and the next bowl I got came loaded with shrimp. These street vendors know how to treat their customers. 3 bowls of ‘’Banh canh ghe/tom ‘’and 2 ‘’tra das” total cost: $6
