The Top Ten Dishes of 2009 #7: Banh mi dac biet at Phuc Loi

Posted By on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 3:18 PM


Banh mi are delicious and shockingly cheap. At Phuc Loi $3.50 scores you the banh mi dac biet, which layers ham, headcheese and pâté on a crusty baguette with cucumber, pickled daikon, carrot and a bracing quantity of raw jalapeño. Phuc Loi then adds a masterstroke: one whole fried egg, the white adding yet another savory note to all that pork, while the yolk -- liquid, but not runny -- contributes a fatty richness that even the finest mayonnaise couldn't provide.
