Traveling home from King Ed pet supplies in I noticed a place advertising Vietnamese subs. Instantly I’m intrigued. My last encounter with a Vietnamese sub was from a street vendor in the business district of NYC. It was delectable. I’m hoping Kim Ahn had a similar take.
Arriving the door I notice signs that state “Breakfast all day,” “Canadian and Vietnamese cuisine.” Shit. I never go to the Cover all bases style of restaurant. If I noticed these signs I would have kept on going but it’s too late now, I’m committed.
It wasn’t hard getting a table as there was lots to choose from. Perhaps for good reason. The woman gives the menu, with a special excerpt for the subs. #5 was my choice, the marinated beef. They also served Vietnamese style coffee too. Score. I elected for the iced with condensed milk. Notable mention that it comes with crushed ice rather than cubes, for instantaneous cooling.
The sub actually hit the spot. Had good ratio of beef to bread to veggies. Beef was flavorful and tender, bread was warm and soft, and devoid of hard ends unlike the NYC counterpart. Decent afternoon snack for a stumble-upon. Good thing all I was expecting was a snack because I could have easily ate two of these and still had room for more.
