Amid the pre-Thanksgiving shopping in Oakland Chinatown, I stopped at Cam Huong for the first time in a long while to pick up a sandwich. I munched on the bbq pork bacon banh mi, $2.25, on the drive down to my parents house.

A warm airy French roll with a light crackly crust, red-stained and slightly sweet striped slices of fatty pork belly that melted in the mouth, just a little mayonnaise, sweet and sour daikon and carrots, cross cut slices of cucumber, cilantro, and jalapeño completed the picture. Comparing it to my usual at Wrap Delight in SF, the bread was better, and I liked the simplicity of less mayonnaise and no additional sauces. The pickled veggies were not as sweet and had a more tart and refreshing impression. Absolutely delicious.
