If you know us, you’ve heard us rave about banh mi sandwiches. We’re talking about pate, pork in some deliciously barbecued, smoked and grilled form or another, pickled vegetables, cilantro – all piled on a freshly baked baguette… Our mouths are watering just thinking about it. Last year, the Banh Mi Brothaz got together to celebrate International Banh Mi Day on March 24. It was the best day ever (see picture evidence at right). The sun was shining, the sandwiches were delicious, and the spiked limeades were flowing. And they’re back again this year.
That’s right, Austin Hu and Vinh Nguyen are ganging up with their pal Marc Johnson for one last swan (pig?) song before Marc leaves us forever for Boston (you lucky New Englanders you!). David, the tall drink of water from Senator Saloon, will be mixing up cocktails. So, let’s review. Best sandwiches ever? Check. Marc’s food farewell to Shanghai? Check. Day drinking? SIGN ME UP. There’s only 100 sandwiches up for grabs at this pop-up, so don’t lay a bed all Sunday people. There’s pork to be eaten.
Here’s the deets.
