Saigon City in San Mateo: Good Pho, Weak Vietnamese Sandwiches
Saigon City is a great place to go for some cheap, fast pho. Well, at lunch today we decided to try out its Vietnamese sandwiches. We were told they were $3.25 a piece…about right, given my experience with Wrap Delight in San Francisco. Well, the meat in the sandwich was good, but we were quite disappointed with what we got.
– Bread: not a French baguette. It was a French -roll-, like the type that comes 6 in a plastic bag in the bread aisle.
– Size: if you know banh mi, you know that the baguette is about 6-8″ long. Alas, a French roll is not.
– Ingredients: Good cilantro leaves, ok amount of BBQ pork, but no jalapeno pepper slices, and very little freshly sliced carrots, cucumbers, and radishes.
Sadly, my quest for good, legit, cheap Vietnamese sandwiches near Burlingame continues. If you have any recommendations, let me know!
