Saigon Deli (Seattle)
This is my go-to spot for Vietnamese sandwiches and the champion is the Banh Mi Thit Nuong (Grilled Pork). It is sweet harmony with the grilled pork, pickled vegetables, cilantro and the savory bread. Fresh, authentic, and packed with flavors. One of the best sandwich deals in town for $3. Newbies, please watch out for the jalapeno because it will creep up on you.
Being a Top Chef addict, I put it on top of my list to go to Ink, Michael Voltaggio’s spot. However they couldn’t increase my reservations so my homies and I had to roll to Ink Sack. This place is definitely the next level sandwich shop. Since it was dinner time, I got two sandwiches to be full. I must say, the pork butt chicharones banh mi was the real deal. I also had the albacore tuna with butter lettuce and jalapenos which was a great combination, balancing the tuna with spice. Also, the mexican chocolate cookie is one of the best cookies ever. So good I had to take one back to Seattle for my girlfriend.
