Ben and Yumiko try bánh mì
I took B&Y to try the world famous Vietnamese sandwich: bánh mì. I brought them to the two shops that many consider the best in Saigon. First up was Bánh Mì Huỳnh Hoa, the sandwich pictured here, at 26 Lê Thị Riêng. Next I took them to my personal favorite, Bánh Mì Hồng Hoa, on 62 Nguyễn Văn Tráng. They liked both, but preferred the first. True, it is a good bánh mì, but I find it too heavy on the meat, paté and mayo.
