Good Morning, Vietnam
Last year The New York Times penned a roundup depicting best bánh mì sandwiches in America, a very passionate subject, according to the hundreds of comments below the article.
If they were to pay Vancouver a visit, they might consider DD Mau, a fresh and welcome addition to the city’s modest Vietnamese sub options. Located in Yaletown, DD Mau serves up bánh mìs of the traditional kind, and of the gourmet variety like the Honey-Garlic Beef ($7), with a delightful runny egg option, as well as the slightly sinful BBQ Roast Duck ($10.80). While you’re at it, ditch the fussy frappuccino and grab a Vietnamese iced coffee ($3.50). Then stroll down the block, find a picnic spot, and enjoy our belated spring. —Anya Georgijevic
