Is It Any Good?

A Food Truck specializing in the Sandwich of Vietnam.

Stumbling out of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and looking for a bite to eat, I strolled across the street, and wandered down Wilshire. There were, of course, a lot of lovely options to choose from, but when the siren call of grilled pork caught my nose, I was sold on Cali Banh Mi.

They had a number of nice Banh Mi options but their Grilled Pork Special was all I needed to see. For ten bucks, my sandwich came with a drink and a fresh spring roll.

See? Who wouldn’t love that…except Vegans and Vegetarians…people who can’t eat Pork for religious reasons. But for the REST of us…

To be honest, I’ve had better Banh Mi. The Spring Roll tasted like it had a some of iceberg lettuce in there (could be wrong about that), and they definitely don’t make their own French Bread (which might be asking a bit much for a Food Truck), but the Grilled Pork was lip-smacking delicious, and worth starting a fight over.

Not that I would, might you. I mean come on, it’s just a sandwich…but a damn good one.


WHAT SHOULD I GET?: What? I haven’t sold you on the Grilled Pork Banh Mi? Dude what are you waiting for? Why are you still reading this?


IMPORTANT SAFETY TIP, PEOPLE: For all of those with Seafood allergies, like me. Let me answer your question in advance. Yes, their Spring rolls do have shrimp in them.

Found out the hard way.

Not that that stopped me, mind you.


PARKING: Uhh, hello. Food Truck. Depends on where it is that given day.

And speaking of “depending on where it is…”


In the future, this is going to be Tricky, because these are Food Trucks and they kinda…you know…move around. Roaming Hunger doesn’t seem to have an embed feature, so let me play with how to keep directions for Food Trucks. In the meantime, Cali Banh Mi will link to their Facebook Page, which I’m sure will always be helpful.
