    That sandwich looks awesome. And I completely agree that these types of experiences are one of the best (and worst) parts about traveling!

    Isn’t always the tiny hole in the wall places or nondescript road side stand that has the best foods? It looks like a variation of a Vietnamese Bahn Mi. Was the bread crispy and chewy? Always amazed how they do that in such humid places. The ones at Saigon Bahn Mi on Grand are pretty good too.

    So what you are saying is that you recommend your tour guides to give food tours?

    Ah, that sandwich looks delicious! So jealous. I once had a banh mi sandwich that was similar from a street vendor in Hanoi. Sweet-and-sour pork, pate, cilantro and other delicious goodies on a French bread bun.

    There was an option to add a fried egg, which I agreed to. Best decision ever, that sandwich was terrific.

    Thanks for sharing.

    My rough rule of thumb when traveling – stay away from the tourist areas, and go where the locals go!

    That looks amazing. And, yes, experiences like this are one of the greatest things about travel, even when you know that it’s one of those once in a lifetime things. Thanks for sharing!

    I ate a version of that sandwich everyday when I was in Laos. For 15 cents, it can’t be beat.

    Sandwich looks really good. Was the bread warmed/grilled?
