Bahn Mi in Portland
Any suggestions on getting the BEST Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwich w/ pate,cilantro,pickled veg. on a really good baquette.) I have tried Kim's on St. John St.
but the bread is all wrong.
Thanks for your help.
I have had a really decent sandwich at Saigon. However, I've also had one that was just okay. Definitely worth a try.
I also like the version at Novare Res. Tasty although not "authentic".
I've had a couple satisfying bahn mi at Kim's, so I bought a bag of those rolls for $2.50. They said they get them in bulk from Boston. When I tried to use one at home I couldn't even slice it open without squashing the damned thing. Kim's microwave them first before assembling a bahn mi. I was so alarmed I haven't been back!
