What? Banh mi at Ba Le.
Where? Chinatown, Downtown Oakland.
Why? Do you have to ask?
And to think, I almost thought that the reason we like these things so much is the fact that they taste like something familiar, but with a twist. They are excellent on their own merits.
One grilled pork banh mi: $2.25.
One can of young coconut water. $1.00
The verdict: Almost too good to be true.
