I have been meaning to share these photos since we went to this place. At first I thought it was from the spring but I see all the snow on the ground, so it's obviously from last winter. With the summer almost over I decided to post them today.
In our area we are fortunate in that we have a large ethnic diversity. Consequently we have been able to explore other cultures, including their foods. When Gregg works in Washington DC, to escape the freeway traffic he will often find alternative routes, and one day being too hungry to wait to get home, he discovered this wonderful Vietnamese sandwich shop. We've been hooked ever since.
On this occasion we had spent the day in the city looking around the museums and rather than eat dinner in DC as we normally do, Gregg asked me if I would mind waiting as he wanted to introduce me to his favorite, the Banh Mi Sandwich. You can find a recipe for one if you click here.
Being a very visual person as I may have mentioned before, I love the look of Asian food as it is always so beautifully presented.
I enjoyed looking around to see what else we might like to order next time we passed by, but frankly we never get passed that sandwich now. The flavors are so unlike anything I have had before and are truly delicious.
There is no seating inside the shop but we are happy to take our sandwich and a drink to the car, where we settle down to eat one of the most yummy taste sensations of Vietnamese cuisine.
We haven't been into DC for a while.
I think we're due for another trip!
Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia for hosting My World.
