When I pulled into Happy Hen Diner yesterday, I noticed a new shop, Thuận Phát Vietnamese Sandwiches across the parking lot. Googling for info on it while I ate breakfast, I found BiteClub's piece published an hour earlier.
Heading out, I walked over to get a banh mi for later. The staff were just turning off the "Open" sign. A young woman was very apologetic that they'd needed to close early. One man who did not speak much English tried to explain that they would be cleaning everything to get ready for Saturday. I asked if they know that Thuan Phat had been written about in the newspaper. They nodded and asked me to come back on Saturday when they'll be ready.
So, I won't be able to be there, but please do report in if you try it today or another time.
