Saigon City: A Banh Mi That Does the Trick
There's a sizable Vietnamese population in D.C. where I moved from, so it's easy to find decent pho and a respectable banh mi. Here? Tougher to find either: It appears South Florida isn't having the same banh mi love affair as elsewhere, which seems about right, since Vietnamese immigrants don't exactly dominate the area's demographics.
Pho is tremendous for a rainy day: a beef broth with rice noodles,
shaved beef or some meat variation, scallions, Thai basil, jalapeno, hot
chilis or Sriracha, and bean sprouts among other things.
