oh banh mi. how i love thee. lets me count the ways. well, actually im not gonna count the ways...theres too many and i dont think my bandwidth would allow it. that shit would be 404'd so quick. but anyway, i love banh mi. it is honestly, probably my favorite food. i dont think ive ever been able to actually decide on a favorite food, but i have now. after eating all around SD trying to find the best banh mi, and not actually making a decisions until ive tried places more than once, i think im ready to call out Lucky Seafood as my favorite. im not saying its the BEST, im just saying its MY favorite.
for those of you uninformed as to what banh mi IS, banh mi is a vietnamese sandwich that is composed on a toasted french baguette, filled with (typically) pickled carrots and daikon, cucumbers, cilantro, jalapeno, pate, mayonaise, and various meats. the meats most often used are steamed or grilled pork, pork belly, head cheese, ham, vietnamese sausage, and chicken. ok, now that we know what it is, time for the review.
Lucky Seafood is in a strip mall up on mira mesa and black mountain road, its an awesome little asian supermarket as it is. its got lots of sweet ass shit. sauces, treats, drinks, lots of yum. but inside they have a deli area that has lots of awesome food, sweet and sour this, steamed that, bun this, roll that. all of which im sure is good because it smells and looks awesome, but ive only sampled the banh mi fare here.
