banh mi! A local told me that Vietnamese can have banh mi any time throughout the day, either as breakfast, lunch, dinner or even late night snacks. Vietnamese descends makes up the majority of the Asians here, in Montreal, and I couldn't wait to try out this vegan banh mi recipe developed by a friend of mine from school, and she's a registered dietitian, so you can count on her ;)
As I really liked the chai latte from the Samovar Tea Bar in the Mission (see SF Cafés Hopping), my friend said I should also visit the Tea lounge at the Yerba Buena Gardens. This Samovar Tea Lounge serves international food and tea pairings from around the world, including Japanese, English, Russian, Moorish, Chinese, and Paleolithic. Moreover, they also have seasonal special! (See menu)
Saigon Ga Xe Phay (西貢牙車快)[/caption] This is definitely a must-order! According on their menu, it is a popular dish in Saigon. It is composed of finely cut red and green cabbage, shredded pickled radish, fresh bean sprouts, tossed with tender shredded chicken, sprinkled with fried garlic chips and crushed peanuts in a light fish sauce (nuoc nam) vinaigrette. Finally, it is garnished with fried prawn crackers and diced cucumbers.
