Wrap Delight: keep walking up the street

PorkButt | Jul 8, 2009 06:50 PM

I should have kept walking up to Saigon Sandwich, but I was in a hurry and it's been long enough since I've gone to Wrap Delight that I forgot why I shouldn't have bothered.

No daikon radish in the pickle mix. There are times when just carrots are appropriate (such as a confined space like an airplane), but otherwise I insist on the slight funk and contrasting texture.

I ordered a combination steamed pork and pate. The pork roll was cut into thick slices by hand and placed in a way that prevented the meat from compacting in. That made it impossible to get the vegetables to burrow in without disassembling the whole thing. Only a slight smear of pate was added so it was essentially just a steamed pork banh mi.

The worst thing was the cilantro. I had to pick it out and the surrounding carrots because much of it had that dark green slime that the herb dissolves into.

Sadly, I would rather have had even a bahn mi from Lee's Sandwiches.
