One thing that's becoming more common in the Greater Bay Area are the sightings of Vietnamese sandwich shops. These establishments can be quite intimidating if one doesn't speak any Vietnamese, since they tend to be quite small and there usually are not any obvious lines and one has to decide quickly before other impatient patrons cut in line. But for the adventurous souls, visits to these shops can be quite rewarding (and cheap).
So when I read of Saigon Sandwich in SF's Little Saigon, I had to make a trip to check it out.
In my opinion, the sandwiches turned out to be only slightly above average. The flavor of the innards were quite good, but the sandwiches that I had ordered had to be consumed quickly; otherwise, they'd get soggy. I would have been happy with what I bought, but I went there with such high expectations, from all of the praises that I had heard, that I was a bit disappointed.
All in all, it was worth my while to check it out.
By the way, one of my blogger friends wrote more extensively about that shop. Y'all can check it out at:
