Every Sandwich at Bahn Mi Che Cali (part 3)

Hungry1 | Nov 13, 200504:47 PM

This week's sandwich: meatball!

The meatball was coarsely ground pork, flavored with garlic, onion, and (I think) a touch of sesame oil, and served warm. Very savory and flavorful. The outside edges had a nice chewy char to them, as if they'd been broiled or fried until brown. The flavor and texture reminded me a bit of Cantonese steamed meatloaf.

The only catch was, that of all the fillings so far, this was the only one that didn't harmonize well with the other components--in particular, the flavor of the meat seemed to clash with the sweetness of the pickled veggies.

So, it wasn't my favorite so far--but if someone were to hand me another one I'd definitely eat it.

Still working up the nerve to try the infamous shredded pork skin sandwich...
