Lee's Sandwiches (new in Westminster)

C. Sprouse | Aug 11, 200111:24 PM     2

For those who like banh mi (vietnamese sandwiches) or are big deli-meat eaters, a huge place opened last week on Bolsa. Of course huge in this case just means not a hole-in-the-wall. It replaced a small grocery store there. They're from San Jose and apparently famous for their meats.

We went today and it was so crowded that they told us the wait was at least an hour (no joke) to get sandwiches made. I don't think this place will be really visitable during weekends for another month. But they had an express line with pre-made sandwiches stacked up (only one kind), so we settled for the 10-minute wait and got that.

Anyway, the quantity and quality of the meat was definately far above what I've ever seen in banh mi. I think the other things in the sandwich suffered because of the meat emphasis, and the bread was a little harder than I prefer, but I'm sure this improves when you get them made-to-order.
