My banh mi experience

Joanie | Apr 9, 2002 12:41 PM

So I made it to Mix Bakery and had a banh mi which was more or less a liverwurst sub. Did I order wrong? I asked for pork (and they first tried to give me one of those pork buns) cuz I thought someone mentioned a bbq pork one, but this was very liverwurst like, which is fine. Some cole slaw type veggies, cilantro, spicy stuff and spread for $2. But I remember getting one of those (before I knew the name) way back at a tiny Vietnamese place on Brighton Ave. between Osco and Camb. St. (it's a middle eastern place now), and their's was better I thought. Whatever, it's a deal any way you look at it.

Another deal are the puposas at La Puposa Guanica in JP. Finally made it after it being there for 3 years and need to explore that menu some more. Now I'm off for southern food and BBQ in VA and NC.
