Stomy Saturday Morning
The name of the restaurant with the wicked Banh Mi sandwich is,Cafe Pho, 823 3rd Ave #201, Seattle, WA 98104 (206) 447-7100.
Cafe Pho buys their baguettes from Le Panier, in the Pike Place Market. I've always enjoyed shopping and eating at Le Panier. Open and lovely it's a reliable place to lift your spirits on a rainy day in the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.
Back to the Banh Mi, a fresh baguette, grilled pork, cilantro, mayonnaise, jalapeno pepper, radish and carrots. The cooks at Cafe Pho do it right balancing the meat and veggies. I squirt Sirachi sauce down the middle. The Banh Mi is wicked because it is rich. Although a blast of white flour, pork grease and mayonnaise, it is not an unhealthy lunch, but indeed a midday delight. And good people watching. Things get busy at Cafe Pho. I've only ordered to go and never waited longer than 5 6 minutes.
