What is it about Bahn Mi's that make them so addicting?

MeffaBabe | Mar 10, 2011 08:43 AM

I have to admit, I was hooked with my very first bite 4 years ago. Since I work in Chinatown in Boston it takes every ounce of my being to not eat a Bahn Mi EVERYDAY for lunch. I have successfully been able to limit my addiction to about every 2.5 weeks and not a day longer.

As I sit here today, yes, today is Bahn Mi day, I find myself wondering what exactly is it about this gastronomical delight that causes my intense cravings? Is it that flaky roll, the pickled veggies, the hot pepper, the bbq beef (only kind I eat) or is it that buttery spread that set my taste buds into a tail spin so many years ago? It doesn't help that they are so darn cheap! $3.00- you can't buy anything good to eat for $3.00 anymore!

I would love to hear from others that find themselves with this same addiction (or not)...
