I believe it's Fraser and Kingsway.

Tiem Banh Dong Khanh on Kingsway has been one of the best I've been to in town and I hear Au Petit Cafe is real good but they always run out.

I think Au Petit is over hyped.

Pho Asia in richmond used to make a really good one but they moved and their subs no longer taste as good

Bali on fraser and Chong Lee Market on Rupert are always two favourites =)

Au Petit Cafe - over hyped. I dont' see what the big deal is, unless some Viet Sub connoisseur said it was the best shit ever, everybody can go fuck themselves.

i will have to say that BA LE subs tastes like shit, and there is no filling whatsoever.

One of the better places would have to be DONG KANH on kingsway.

Ba Le is not that great value. You can get a footlong banh mi at Dong Khanh for $2.75 on Kingsway and they bake the baguettes in house, or go 2 doors over at Kingsway Deli for the same thing.

lol i eat the Chong Lee viet sub a lot...$2.75 beats subway across the street anyday

But it's a hit or miss...sometimes they sell out by 130pm..sometimes the person is on break -.-

Do you guys like the duck liver paste? I personally think it's disgusting..but it does add an intersting taste. I always ask for them not to put that in.

PATE is the fucking BOMB! I buy that shit everytime I'm in Vancouver and spread it on some toasted French Bread Fuck yeah!

For Viet Subs, I would have to say Au Petit Cafe. However, it's a lot more expensive then other places(I think). Theirs a lot of hype about it and maybe I've bought into it, since I think they make some pretty damn good subs, compared to other viet places.

I noticed that every place for banh mi I've been to, they're made slightly different, then again I couldn't tell you what's authentic or not.

Green Lemongrass on Westminster packs a lot of meat into theirs and is accordingly more expensive, though in my mind banh mi isn't necessarily about an ample filling.

Okay, so I tried the Viet sub at Tung Hing Dong Khanh on Kingsway. Here is my overall review:

1. They bake their own bread - French baguette style
2. The deli meats they use are of good quality. It's actual meat, not super processed.
3. The jalapenos they use are striking hot unlike other places where they de-seed the jalapenos.
4. The sub itself is quite huge.
5. I'm not chugging down a litre of water thanks to MSG.

Verdict - for $2.75, it's actually pretty good and I favour the style of sub compared to the famous "Mr. Baguette" in SoCal. Overall, pretty filling and satisfying. Downside to all of this is the parking. It sucks. You can park in their lot or on the street but finding parking is a PITA. I would not go out of my way to go there for the life of me. Growing up in Chinatown, my family went to Ba Le on Main for Viet subs so in comparison, they're very different styles in my opinion. I prefer a good French baguette over a smaller loaf of bread and MSG induced deli meats.

Bonka - awesome suggestion. You sir, are a man who knows true, good food.
