Re:Banh Mi Sandwich (Vietnam)
Our local Vietnamese restaurant finally knuckled under and started offering Banh Mi sandwiches. I approached them several years ago, asking why they weren't on the menu. The owner told me he wasn't interested because there would be too much sandwich competition from the Subway store around the corner.
I almost gagged. I tried explaining that they were completely different, and that anyone interested in a good quality Banh Mi wouldn't be caught dead in a Subway franchise. it took a couple of years, and probably more than a few other customers urging him to do so, but he finally made the addition, putting up a sign in the window just the other day, "Vietnamese Sandwiches Now Available".
Still haven't got over there to try one, but I'm looking forward to my next day off when I can stop in for lunch.
