Chowing Down on Irving Cafe's Banh Mi
I really suck for not ever having made it to Irving Cafe & Deli in all the years I've lived less than a quarter mile away from this awesome purveyor of banh mi (aka Vietnamese sandos). Especially after I'd been lamenting the lack of really good banh mi in SF—more specifically, crying foul over the mediocre quality of the bread. Soft, spongey bread is a no bueno. Airy, crusty slender baguettes are IT. Well, Irving Cafe & Deli has it all. This here's the roast pork with the works on crispety-crunchety French bread, slathered with plenty of special sauce. ICD's now on my radar.
