What should I get at Dong Phuong Oriental Bakery?
The Chinese Roast Pork is great. I always ask the woman making the banh mi which type she recommends, and she always says the #5. Whether it's really the best or whether it's just what most non-Vietnamese customers [such as myself] tend to like, I'm not sure, but it's always good. I'd like to try the others--anyone on here have suggestions?
If you're looking to order a banh mi sandwich..
Get the Banh Mi Thit Nguoi which is the cold cut combo and what most Vietnamese people order. Also, the Banh Mi Thit Nuong is good and is my favorite. That's the grilled pork sandwich. For pastries, I like the Pate Chaud and the Banh Bao (Steamed Buns).
