it took me this entire time to finally get over there & try some of their grub. since they are the "home of the vietnamese bánh mi sandwich," that's what i had to get.
here's what i had ...
lemongrass tofu banh mi :
cucumber, pickled carrots, cilantro, vegetarian soy sauce, jalapeño & lemongrass tofu on a fresh baked baguette.
guys. this was amazing. since i brought it home, i added some of my own vegan mayo ... which really took this from an a to an a+.
tofu springrolls :
rice paper rolls stuffed with rice noodles, mint leaves, tofu, lettuce & bean sprouts & served with fresh peanut sauce.
here's where things derailed ... these springrolls were just a no. first off all, they were HUGE. this is a full size dinner plate. what?! second, they contained mushrooms. which were not listed as an ingredient ... and we know how i feel about mushrooms. they were also just generally not very good. luckily, the sandwich made up for it.
