Grilled pork sandwich – Pho Big Bowl

Grilled pork sandwich - Pho Big Bowl
Banh mi thit heo nuong. French bread with grilled pork, cucumber, mayonnaise, pickled daikon and carrots, jalapeno, and cilantro. $4.85
Pho Big Bowl, Seattle WA

This was a pretty sizeable sandwich for costing less than five bucks! That’s why I love banh mi’s, they tend to be delicious and a great value. The pork on this sandwich was tender and flavorful.

I liked this salad, but the chicken wasn’t as good as the kind they put in their banh mi’s. But everything tastes better with that lime-fish sauce on top!

Grilled duck breast – Nojo

Grilled duck breast - Nojo
Napa cabbage and daikon pickle, apple-soy sauce. $17.50
Nojo, San Francisco CA

I’m a huge fan of duck, and this dish was cooked perfectly! The duck had a great grilled exterior while the meat remained moist and tender. The nice layer of skin fat gave the breast such an amazing flavor. And you can never go wrong with pickling some napa cabbage?!
