|The lunch line at Lee's|
|A Baguette filled with spicy Asian pork and sliced veggies|
Lee's Sandwiches are a chain of over 55 Vietnamese Fast Food restaurants across America. They serve banh mi, a traditional Vietnamese style sandwich served on a freshly baked French baguette.
I guess you have to remember that the French controlled Vietnam for about 50 years. The baguette these sandwiches is served on is the real deal - fabulously crispy on the outside, deliciously light and chewy on the inside. I haven't had such a good baguette since I was in France!
The Asian sandwiches on the menu feature grilled chicken, various kinds of pork, sardines or ham - all are loaded with greens, crispy vegetables and peppers.
They are really good!
There are also more American style offerings - all with freshly baked bread. Yummy!
It was worth the drive down to Orange County for this lunch date. I really enjoyed it!
