This!

Tung Hing has been skimping on the marinade for the vegetables, the inconsistency is hogwash. I'll buy a load of bread though, granted, I hate that they leave it on the counter.

And Ba Le, I was choked when they raised it to 3.50 from 3 recently. Alas, on par with other Viet places I guess.

Yes!

Ever since the pregnant lady popped her kid out, they have not been the same.

I still love their bread though and prefer it over Ba Le by far.

Tung Hing hasn't been the same since their baker left. Buns and bread have definitely gone downhill

Depends..

While most places probably get their meat from Kim Chau, the important things such as the pate and pickled veggies I'd imagine they make themselves. Not to mention finding the right kind of bread.

Coming from a guy who has pretty little experience with Vietnamese food, has anyone grid the subs at Union. Authentic or not, I'm not sure, but they are awesome.

I prefer the roast pork from first and renfrew upstairs from tnt. The viet subs from Chong lee are good if your planning on grabbing subs their you have to get a meatball sub and a special on the side. Eat dat meatball sub right when it's nice and hot.

The one on 1st and Renfrew is a freezer store, iirc. The subs at the one at Rupert and 22nd are mehhhh, bread isn't nearly as good as the ones that are fresh baked in house, and they microwave their meat for the meatball sub.

Definitely Tung Hing.
If you get there just as the bread is leaving the oven, the bread pretty much melts in your mouth.
It's amazing.

Easily one of top eats in the city. They can charge me whatever they want and I will stay pay through the teeth to get it from them.

And yes, I think they are better than Bale and Au Petite.
While those places are also good, they bread just doesn't quite measure up.


Sometimes, I'll ride out from Burnaby, grab a sub and just sit on the parking lot curb and nom-noms away. So good.

You've had one recently?

No offense but you sort of lost some credibility from me on all these awesome pictures of food you've made lol.

Tung Hing isn't even worth a mention/recommendation in my books these days. Granted, I've only tried subs from the 24hr pho across Mcdonalds, Tung Hing, Kim Chau, and Ba Le, and various other Viet restaurants. But Ba Le is definitely the most consistent/good, I've found.
