"HI, BUS!"

Damn, I've been eating these 3 or 4 times a week for a month!
I LOVE these things!

http://www.fudcourt.com/jcs_viet.html
I like to add the hot pepper garlic sauce, hoisin sauce, and Sriracha to the already hot jalepenos in the sandwich. YUMMY.
At $2.00 or so they're a bargain. Buy two!

The basic ingredients:
big ol' French roll filled with your choice of meats (chicken, pork or beef or a combination),
shredded carrots, shredded daikon radish, cilantro, mayo, paté (yeah, paté), jalapeños, and cucumber.

What, no dog or cat? Hey, you did say they were a VIETNAMESE sandwich, right.

Sounds good!

Never had one though....I live in the sticks.

Somebody told me they're REALLY good with Monkey Meat...
Link Posted: 5/12/2004 5:18:36 PM EST
Looks good. Are you in Seattle? Where should I get one if I'm in town?
Link Posted: 5/12/2004 5:23:49 PM EST
There's quite a few places in and around Seattle to get these.
I've been collecting the cards or menus when I go to different restaurants to remember which ones I prefer.
Check the Yellow Pages for places to go if you're in the area.
Better yet, get the ingredients at the store and start learning to make 'em. That's what I'm gonna do!
I've got the sauces already. Time to check the internet for preparation recipes.

Actually Rat would be the way to go for a guy. Rat meat is suppose to make you potent sexually. At least that what the Chineese think.

As I strive to be culturally diverse, I have tried the sammiches and like them. The corriander (cilantro to the less culinarily experienced) and jalapeno makes the taste a unique and flavorful experience. The place I go to sells them for like $2 and it is buy one get one free, so it fits very well into my budget when there is stinginess at the water fountains.

Peace be with you.

Jesus, man. Can't you just give me the name of one or two joints and what neighborhood/street they're on?

I don't buy the Vietnamese sandwiches, but the bread is heavenly. The bread is a like a French baguette. I cut off a section, slice in half lenght-wise, and heat it up with with butter in a frying pan. Yum, that and a cup of coffee. You can buy the bread at some of the Asian supermarkets. Its cheaper than than the American sliced bread. Around the L.A. Calif area, at one super mkt you can buy a 1lb loaf for 79¢.

I didn't eat pho, but they bring out a plate with all kinds of stuff like bean sprouts and jalapenos to add. There was a tree branch or something like it on the plate too.

raven]. Google is your fricking friend. Type: Seattle, Vietnamese restaurants
Voila.



Which are sit-down restaurants (which probably wont have $2 sandwiches) and which are storefront quickie lunch joints? I dont know.

There's only one Vietnamese restaurant in my town, and it's a nice sit-down restaurant.

yummy, those sandwiches rock! there's a great little Viet grocery in Hartford that makes the best sandwiches, and the girls that work there (all sisters), are really cute. I haven't been there in a while, think that it's time.

No kidding.... had a guy in my Guard unit who was Thai by birth. We both were in college at the time, so alot of times,
we came in during the month, during the week, to make up for missed drills. We'd go out for lunch, and he had the nose,
where he'd swear, "I can walk into any Oriental place, take a few sniffs, and tell you if they're serving something
besides chicken, beef or pork."
I always thought that he was full of it, but there were a few places that he wouldn't go to, as he swore that their 'cuisine'
had been wearing a collar earlier!

I believe he is referring to either the stalk of basil leaves, or the mint.

Strip the basil off the stalk put it and some bean sprouts and peppers in the pho. Stir it all in. Some people will just leave the basil in the bowl others will eat it.

I guess its a sandwitch for lunch today. The combo pate' is tastey at my local joint. Too hot for Pho today should be 90 deg.

OK here is what was on the lunch menu today

1 bowl Pho containing the following Rare brisket, fatty tendon, well done flank.I added 1 lime segment sqeezed in, 1 branch of Basil (stripped about 5 leaves) 5 peices of pepper, a couple shakes of fish sauce.

1 Combo Viet Hoagie. I think the darn thing had smoked pig tail in it. It was sliced real thin and looked a little like bacon. The pate' was smooth and favorful as were the fresh greens.

Thanks busmaster007, I hadnt been there in awhile.

When it's too hot for Pho, then it's time for some Bun! I haven't seen any sandwiches in the Viet restautrants here in Austin.

A particularly good place for the sandwiches is Seattle Deli, which is on 12th ave. between Jackson and Boren streets, a few blocks east and up the hill from China town, or "International District," on the east side of I-5. It's a light colored building, unusual because it's not part of a strip mall, and is a single story buiding that appears as if it's 1.5 stories. There are many good places in the immediate vecinity, though for these sandwiches, I would recommend walk in stores rather than restaurants. The restaurants are good too, such as Saigon Bistro, but my uncle swears by the delis for sandwiches and smaller fare instead.

That tree branch would be Thai Basil.

In downtown Bellevue, there's a new Pho place called "What the Pho." Keep in mind that Pho is pronounced similarly to "Fuh." I haven't tried it yet, but the name got a chuckle.
