Mr. Lee has opened a Monterey Park branch for their Vietnamese sandwiches (we believe the report is for Mr. Baguette, per info below), and sickman reports the roast beef banh mi and baguette are great as usual.
When it comes to banh mi, Professor Salt is fond of Banh Mi Cho Cu, adding that most of the top banh mi shops are great at something (bread, iced coffee, desserts) but not everything. Top Baguette, Mr. Baguette, and Banh Mi Che Cali are all good to try.
And coming soon to Valley Boulevard–Beard Papa! In the same shopping mall as Mei Long Village. Soup dumplings and pork pump, then cream puffs. Mmmmm…
