Lowell: Banh Mi and Corn

Heng Heng Fast Food is now where B&K used to be - same set up, but a lot more menu options - and the banh mi has got a lot more in it - and still at $2.00. Across the street, Yummy is still there and they have outstanding spring rolls and delicious beef sticks in ready to go plastic-wrapped packages. The beef meat is either from the rib or somewhere else equally fatty and connective tissuey - they are really flavorful.

Heng Heng and Yummy are on Branch Street, where it splits off of Middlesex. Yummy is in the Angor Wat supermarket parking lot, and Heng Heng is across the street.

Outside, there's a guy selling corn off the back of his truck for 3 ears/$1.00. He said they were picked this morning and he then drove in from Amherst. I haven't cooked them yet - but they pass the fresh test (fingernail in kernel, lots of juice).
