A Trip to the Báhn Mì Shop

The high temperature today is around 28 degrees. In other news, the heat in our house doesn't really "work." So best idea: go to different Pho restaurant, where they have heat and soup.

Different Pho (50) was okay, but 75 is still better, as everybody knows.

Good thing is that Pho 50 is right next to a Báhn Mì shop. Since I recently learned from the Washington Post that Báhn Mì is "in" for 2008, while panini is "out," it was a no-brainer: go get some in-sandwiches! Up yours, panini! I never liked you anyways!

The good thing about the shop was that it had all sorts of great sundries. Here's a smattering:

1. Shrimp Snacks: A Vietnamese sandwich shop is not a Vietnamese sandwich shop without shrimp-flavored snack treats. These particular ones are Bar-B-Que flavor, which means that it's basically like a cookout in a bag, shellfish-style.

2. While you're at it, how about some baked squid-flavored Pringles? I don't know if they're actually Pringles, but they should be.

3. The Vietnamese sandwich shop is your one-stop shop for all your vegetarian food needs! Just two tablespoons in the aquarium once a day, and your vegetarian will grow a healthy and luxurious coat!

4. Need dessert? Sure you do. Man cannot live on sandwiches and fried sea-creature snacks alone. Man requires green pie. I do not care if it's by the slice or the whole. Give it.

Final review: sandwiches not as good as the place in San Francisco from where I transported five sandwiches with me on the plane back home, but still good.
