it used to be neck and neck, mr. baguette and lee's sandwiches in the sgv. lee's doesn't have grilled beef, so mr. baguette always got points there. BUT, i'm holding in my hand the vestiges of what mr. baguette used to be - a completely boring chicken sandwich with (big WTH here) a little baggy of the most boring viet veggies ever! it's just a few shreds of daikon and carrot, and two slices of pepper. WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO THE CILANTRO AND THE CUCUMBER? they seem to have been slowly getting stingier and stingier ever since they expanded, first offering completely unnecessary "western-style" lettuce and tomato baguettes, and now this nonsense.
the war is over. lee's has won. that is, unless... i'm missing some secret ordering code where they'll actually put some cilantro and cucumber into my sandwich.
need alternatives. how does the banh mi che cali on valley in alhambra compare btw?
