This place opened last summer and the name was Pho Noodle House. I didn't bother trying it because I can walk to Pho'licious. Then the other day, I stopped at Big City Bagel in the same shopping center and notice the signage now said Pho Banh Mi & Che Cali. Hmmm
The next day, I though, let me go check this place out. I walk in the door and sure enough... the same Banh Mi menu as the Banh Mi & Che Cali down Brookhurst in Little Saigon. I ordered a sandwich, picked up some cookies and asked for a coffee. The plastic cup was the same as from Banh Mi & Che Cali down Brookhurst in Little Saigon. Hmmm
I think I'm catching on. So, I ask the very nice lady making my sandwich... are you the same Banh Mi & Che Cali as down Brookhurst in Little Saigon? She smiled and said yes. I asked, have you own this place since it changed from the coffee shop. She smiled and said yes.
I'm not that stupid. I made the connection. This Is The Same Banh Mi & Che Cali As The Place Down Brookhurst In Little Saigon!!!
Wow, right in my hood!
Sandwich rocked on fresh baked baguette ( you also have the choice of a roll) and the coffee was delicious. They also have their wonderful cream puffs! In addition, they have a full noodle house menu. Pho, Bun, Com DIa, Spring Rolls. I was so full from my #25 that I didn't try the noodles, but I'll be back.
The banh mi are $2.25 and they don't offer the buy 2 get 1 free like they do down Brookhurst in Little Saigon, but I shouldn't be eating 3 sandwiches anyway.
Pho Banh Mi & Che Cali is located at Brookhurst & Talbert in the same center that houses the ClaimJumper. They are opened 7 days a week 9AM to 9PM.
