Lee sandwich in SJ - more finds

Han Lukito | Feb 22, 200408:54 PM

After delightful discovery of the fluffy pork bun at Binh Minh last month, I found out that the place did not offer them on regular basis (not when I was there today). So I went a few blocks down the road to King and stopped at Lee Sandwich. The store had several types. In fact they seem to stock them on regular basis as I saw numerous of them on the shelf near the cashier.

Pork bun here has the same fluffy bun and the same ingredients which is mainly minced pork, hard boiled egg and a small piece of chinese sausage. The taste is probably identical which means delicious.

Chicken bun has the same fluffy bun but the filling is mostly chicken in some type of sauce that taste like oyster sauce (slightly sweet) but quite delicious.

The third type is probably a char siu.

The good thing here is the bun which is fluffy and good. All for around $1 or so. Great deal !!

I also got a sticky rice with banana filling. The whole thing was probably grilled and then wrapped with a bit of banana leaf which gives it more fragrance. Pretty good for $1.25
