Banh Mi!

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 09, 2009

Banh Mi Saigon Bakery, one of my favorite places to get my lunch on, gets a shout-out in the NY Times. The bread is really fantastic. I’m intrigued by the sandwich at Silent H called the Greenpoint:

Elsewhere in Brooklyn, where authenticity is not as strictly enforced, Vinh Nguyen has created a succulent banh mi at Silent H called the Greenpoint: a tribute to the area’s many traditional Polish butcher shops. Instead of cha lua, smooth pork terrine, he lays on Krakowska kielbasa, a smoked sausage. “That smokiness and pepperiness makes perfect sense on a banh mi,” he said. “I would be a fool to ignore these great traditional products being made in my neighborhood.”

Yes, more sandwiches!
