Bahn Mi at Lotus Garden?

Driving by just the other day I noticed a banner over Lotus Garden "Now serving Vietnamese Sandwiches " I think it also said take out only but I'm not sure.

Anyone tried them yet?

  1. We've had 'em. $4.50 (a dollar more than what I think of as 'standard"), but worth it. Very nice, larger, roll than the other place we get them on San Bruno.

    Yes it's take out only. We took them to Holly Park and ate them at my son's baseball game.

      What are the options for the fillings? Do they have meatball? How about tofu?

        We just had pork -- my wife picked them up so I can't tell you what your options are.

          I just got around to checking them out. The options are:

          Combination (Ham, "Fancy" pork)
          BBQ Pork
          Shredded Pork
          Vegetarian Tofu

          Had a combination...the bread was acceptable: crunchy outside, but a bit too chewy on the inside. Fairly average pork, and although they don't mention it, I thought I tasted fish sauce. Maybe there was some in the mayo. I won't be rushing back, but good to have it as an option if I've got the craving and don't want to trek to the 'loin.
