Mangez Avec Moi Express is a small, carry-out establishment neighboring it’s main sit-down restaurant. Specializing in Vietnamese bahn mi, I recently grabbed a sandwich for dinner on the way home from work. How did it turn out?
I was a bit wary at first; the guy preparing my sandwich was decidedly not Vietnamese. However, I kept an open mind, ordering a spicy “traditional” bahn mi – a French baguette with cilantro, pate Vietnamese ham, vegetables, peppers and a sweet sauce.
After taking the quick picture above, I dug in. Although the sandwich got a little crushed in my bag, the baguette was nicely toasted, and the vegetables were fresh. For $6-7, the bahn mi provided a filling and scrumptious dinner meal. I wouldn’t say that it was the best bahn mi I’ve ever had, but I won’t turn my nose up at this one.
Worth a try.
