YUM: Bahn Mi Saigon


There's nothing quite like a delicious sandwich. I am a big sandwich fan, and love discovering new favorites. My current favorite is the Bahn Mi sandwich, which is a Vietnamese street sandwich that is almost always inexpensive, fresh, and yummy! I've been meaning to try the sandwiches for ages, especially after reading my friend Eddie's tweets about them.

I've tried two different bahn mi places, Bahn Mi Saigon & Paris Sandwich. At both places I tried the "original" pork sandwiches. I can now say that I am addicted! I love the rich pork flavor coupled with the slightly sour pickled vegetables, and I can never say no to cilantro! The photo above is that of a sandwich from Bahn Mi Saigon, but I was pretty impressed with the sandwiches at both places.

The best part.... each of these sandwiches were under $5! As my friend Stephanie would say.... that's Living Life on a Budget!

This illustration was very helpful by showing me exactly what these sandwiches are made of.


Just wanted to put some feelers out there, how do y'all feel about food and other non-shopping related posts? Yay or nay?

  12. First of all, i really enjoy your blog!
    I love Banh Mi, we have those pretty much in every asian bakery here in Oz.
    I prefer mine with chicken though, and no pate.
