Lee's Sandwiches in Chandler, AZ

For those of you from CA, you already know this place. Euro-Asian sandwiches are their speciality, also serving standard American style subs. I'm not a bread person, but the concept intriqued me. The smell of the bread and asian BBQ pulled me inside to the counter where you order and wait. And wait. Ten minutes later, you get your little french style baguette filled with what I define as Vietnamese food. Your choices for meat inside can be sliced pork (my choice), BBQ pork, chicken, and more. They add a bit of pickled vietnamese carrot and diakon, cilantro and very thinly sliced jalapeno. Maybe some onion and lettuce. Delicious. And $2.50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The bread itself is certainly a terrific baguette. So good that I was imaging taking one home and using it for bruschetta. They have various other vietnamese items for sale, such as the red bean filled buns. My nail tech advises that if you getting take out and saving it for later, ask them to wrap the insides of the sandwich separate from the bread. Otherwise, you get a soggy baguette.

I'm not a sandwich fan. Ever. But these things finally made me understand how Jared could survive eating only subs for all those months. Not that I could do it on Subway sandwiches, as he did. But at Lee's? Easily could mange for a few weeks.

On the SE Corner of Dobson & Warner, across the street from Lee-Lee (big surprise!). I understand there are plans to build many more of these wonderful shops. Welcome them to the valley.
