    i like top baguette too. i haven't had it since i left my fountain valley job :(

    we're going there again tomorrow so i'll look out for Cho Cu. Pho Saigon in Riverside is already pretty decent as the prices are fairly cheap and the Lemongrass Chicken is pretty killer.

    Killed a spicy lemongrass chicken Bánh Mě for lunch today. DAMN it was good--or rather I should say for $4.35 it was GREAT.

    I have no idea if mine tasted anything like the ones you get in restaurants, but it was damn delicioso. Gotta find a restaurant that makes them with tofu.

    I made it to Banh Mi Che Cali in Westminster over the weekend. What an experience! I walked in the the place was mobbed, which I took as a good sign. Then I made my way over to the counter and I noticed that little old ladies were pushing ahead of me and yelling out there orders. I admit that I was a bit intimidated at first, because everyone was speaking Vietnamese (don't know how to speak it) and order taking was all about who can yell out there order the fastest. After I realized this, I just ran with it...I fought my way to the front and barked out my order for 3 BBQ Pork Banh Mi's and 1 baguette. My husband and son started munching on the baguette while we were waiting for the sandwiches to be made and he said it was the best baguette he's had outside of France. It was really flaky and buttery on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside with a perfect amount of chew.

    We got our sandwiches and they were really tasty. The bread was fresh, the pork had good flavor and was a nice contrast against the carrots, daikon, peppers, cilantro and that garlickly, buttery mayonnaise (what is that stuff called besides crack?).

    I really don't know how this place makes money because the sandwiches are $2.50 each, but if you buy two - you get one free, which makes the sandwiches cost about $1.67 each. These are big sandwiches. I made the mistake of not ordering Che and 10 more baguettes , but it was still crowded and my husband needed to rest (he's nursing some broken ribs). That said, I will definitely be back for more, but next time I think I'll take a Vietnamese friend with us to order our food.

    Funny this thread pops up, I just had my first banh mi experience last week. My buddy took me to a place he likes in the west valley (don't remember the name). We ordered a charbroiled pork banh mi, some other banh mi that had cold cuts in it, and a side of shrimp spring rolls. We shared the meal to get a taste. Everything was quite good, but the pork banh mi was exceptional! I don't know what they season the meat with but it tasted awesome! Damn, now I'm craving it! Next time I go I'm getting two of those pork sandwiches!

    my mom goes there to get the baguettes and some other things. haven't gotten a banh mi sandwich there though since we get them elsewhere.

    you don't have to speak vietnamese to order, just do what you did.
    i don't speak vietnamese (like my parents do) but i know what i want and that's pretty much how you do it there and most of the other places around there, including the meat and seafood area in the asian markets.
