^^^^ BA LE!?!?!?

Sorry but your opinion doesn't matter anymore. Ba Le is probably the worst Vietnamese sub ever

Banh Mi Saigon was legit. i went there and I was quite happy, clean operation, fast and quick. Bit more meat + other stuff (special viet bun) than Au Petite, and yes, it's bigger than Au Petite.

i would rate it tad bit better.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.

Read this thread and decided to try Banh Mi Saigon due to the hype on here.

Damn. Good stuff. Yeah as others have posted, there's a bit more meat compared to Tung Hing. Got the Special $4.75. Will definitely go back.

Didn't realize it was the lady that use to work with her husband at night market selling those 6-colouor jelly coconut milk drinks.

Someone should just organize a Viet Sub Revscene meet/tour, drive from one to the other and try them all.

Finally had a chance to go to Banh Mi Saigon. Got a chicken sub, quick and tasty, less than $5 ... but how come it's not toasted and warmed up? Everything was cold including chicken. I love it when they use grilled lemon grass flavored chicken in their sub. Give it a 7.5/10. I was expecting it to be lightly toasted ... is traditional Viet sub not toasted?

Tried two places downtown, kinda stupid since I grew up and still live by Kingsway and Fraser but first I went to One Saigon and it was about the same as I get in the neighborhood but then Viet Sub by the library..... First it was 4.75 each and so I got $9.50 out to get two but then they asked for 9.81.

In the heat of the moment I thought maybe there's tax on top? Put my exact change back in my pocket like a dummy and gave him a 20. Never seen sub prices at such an odd number. I've eating these things since they were $2 and they always were in increments of quarters. Anyways still laughing at how my mind was obliterated by 31 cents lol

On to the actual sub, it was not good. I had a meatball one which has always been saucy everywhere else but here it was really dry. Same with the special, which was dry until the last 2 inches that had the fish sauce on it.

In that area I would stick with One Saigon
