bahn mi in SF part one.

So I’m on a hunt for a shop in SF that will sell me a bahn mi laced with crack like the one near A.’s apartment in Chinatown does. I swear, I could spend years living off nothing but that stuff. I haven’t yet made it to Saigon Sandwich shop, which everyone swears by, but the other day I went to the mission to Yucatasian, which as the name would imply, sells Yucatan food along with Vietnamese sandwiches. Interesting combination. I had a pork sandwich for $3 and while it was good, they forgot to add the crack. Also it was probably only 80% of the size. I’ll go back to try the combo sandwich, but I don’t think it will feed the addiction.

    grad students on crack indeed: the bahn mi at the foodtrucks is surprisingly good! and, satisfying additional grad student quality of life issues, big enough for lunch+dinner at lab and cheap enough to allow for lots of drinks later.

    what is this cracked-out banh mi vendor in NYC called? nothing like a good crack-laced sandwich to kick-start the day. next time you’re in new york, you’ll have to try the ones in brooklyn’s chinatown, as they’re reputedly the best. last i heard, anyway.

    did that pork sandwich you had have paté in it as well? banh mi ain’t banh mi without the mystery meat.

    i could look it up on the internet and find it, but then i would read about the delicious bahn mi and spend the rest of the day craving something i can’t have. looking at a map, it’s approximately at grand and elizabeth, but i will look up at the sign next time i go and report back. i’m headed to new york shortly, and have already planned to do a full scale bahn mi investigation.

    it didn’t have pate, but the pork was pretty mystery-meat-like.
