Search for the Perfect Vietnamese Sandwiches

A weekend ritual for my wife and me is to get some tofu sandwiches from Ba Le on North Lamar. They are my favorite sandwiches in town. Incredible cheap too. We usually pick up some of the french bread there. Four loaves for a dollar.

Bad news though. My wife drove out there today and a sign on Ba Le’s door said “closed until December 2006.” No explaination given.

With a craving for Vietnamese sandwiches, she stopped off at nearby Tam’s Deli. We’ve been to Tam’s before on a recommendation from a Vietnamese friend, but didn’t like the sandwiches as much. Today was no different. We both agreed the sandwiches were just not as good.

So where else can I get good Vietnamese sandwiches in town?

    Ba Le is good stuff.

    Pho Van, a vietnamese restaurant in the shopping center with Din Ho and Target (183 and Ohlen), makes a pretty good one. I think they only have three kinds though and none with tofu.

    Hai Ki, on East Oltorf next to Oat Willies, has the sandwiches, but regrettably, they use bolillos (Mexican sandwich rolls) rather than French bread. Other dishes are good there!
