I'm ashamed and embarrassed.
I've never tasted banh mi. (see link below to LA Times piece for Ask Mr. Gold)
Unlike the poster in this article, I will drive as far as need be for the tastiest representation of said product.
So my question to you, dear hounds, is this... where can the best example of such a thing?
Rosemead doesn't sound so far to me :-)
Also, what is it about these sandwiches that is so extraordinary, and what is it about your individual LA picks that make them so unique and special when compared to others?
Many thanks in advance, fellow 'hounds
