I was in a restaurant ordering pho with 10 other people.  We ordered the food and sat in a long row table.  When the waiter brought the food over, he brought me the wrong order and I told him that's not mine.  He looked at me kind of disgusted like "why don't you pass it down the table to see who ordered the unknown dish.  I can't walk all the way over there."

Thais on average are more SEA than Viets. They're more lay back and less ambitious.

Heck even chinese rest are more polite ands that's not saying much.

To be fair, I did have a decent exp however at a vn rest in a ghetto area. I ordered a big tray of fried rice for a party. Paid $50 which I thught was way too expensive. It was bad. Too dry and maybe a wield flavor,. Basically I felt so  bad. a waste of money and giving people,bad food at work.

A few months later I went back and bought something else. They do have some decent noodle dishes. I told the lady about my experience, she refunded me $25. i thought that was pretty decent of her to do that bc I wouldn't expect that fr a ghetto rest.  They earned my loyalty that's for sure. Another thing is maybe they're Lao viet or something bc another lady who tends the counter is Lao. She speaks fluent English but no vnmese.

I met a Thai person today.  I went to a VN sandwich place and was waiting in line in front of a Thai guy ordering 3 VN BBQ pork sandwich.  He was waiting for his sandwiches when he turned around and asked me what is in the desert packages, I think it was banana wrapped in rice cake, and if they are good.  I was about to say. "WE KILL THE COW! AND WE CUT THE COW!"

He said that VN deserts are similar to Thai deserts and the deserts prepared in the packages look similar to Thai deserts.  I told him that it looks like a banana wrapped in steamed rice with coconut sauce desert.

But overall he was a nice inquisitive man.  I felt sorry that he had to dealt with Vietnamese.

Lol!  The high end Vietnamese restaurants have good service and are nicer.  But restaurants like Pho 707 is all about getting people in and out.

I don't care for Lee sandwiches.

I like Ba Le sandwiches in cali. They give a good helping of pate which made the sandwich moist.

Remember Linda Trang Dai?  she has a sandwich shop "Lynda Trang dai sandwich shop" I think. The other day, I ordered cha sui pork sancwiche. Ideally the cha sui should be made wit pork belly. They used leg meat which was a bit dry. BUT, I really love the VN home made mayonnaise, I love the garlicky-buttery taste unlike some other shop that use jar mayo out of convenience.

Linda Trang Dai has a sandwich shop?  I heard she's not slutty anymore.  She's trying to go legit.  So I guess her sandwiches should be legit.

That's Parisian Sandwiches.  Don't go there.  I only went because I got out of a haircut place next door and I was hungry and got lazy so I just went in.  You would think the bread would be fresh since they have a bakery in there.  The bread tasted pretty stale.

I should have gone to Don's Sandwich but it's too crowd and I would probably have to fight to get in front of the line, no semblance of order.  They put a fair heaping of butter in the sandwich that one bite will squirt the butter out like an orgasm.

Lee's sandwich banh mi are nasty.  Their banh mi is so hard that you can give then a concussion with it.  Linda Trang Dai has a banh mi store where I live too. I never ate there, but I heard it is nasty.

I have lived with Thais and have traveled to many parts of the world where there are Vietnamese.  Even if you compare the peasant Vietnamese in not so rich countries like Ukraine and Brazil with the peasant Thais in Thailand, the Thais always come out on top on politeness and generosity.   I hope my offsprings never become dictator of Vietnam in the future because a lot of peasants will be deported for road building projects in Africa and Mars.

Lee sand must have changed their bread. Now it’s softer and more moist. I now eat Lee sandwiches once a week.

I have tried most of the Lee Sandwich joints including the original location in San Jose and they are average to good and never really "bad".  They have decent Vietnamese chicken curry with bread and herbs too.  Damn good for under $10 especially on a cold rainy day.

In little Saigon, you get spoiled by great sandwiches joints. I live in the burb, the only sandwich shop is Lee. I really think they have improved the bread. Either that or go to the restaurants they only have bbq pork sandwiches. If you want cold cut go to Lee. I also buy their homemade mayonnaise. Really good.

Does Little Saigon have Huong Lan sandwiches?  I like their breads better than Lee, but not the best.  There's a new sandwich shop in town, and I like their breads the best.  It's more mềm dẻo than the crunchy and sometimes hard breads that Lee uses.
