Met up with my Flickr friend, Rex.
His photography is currently being shown at The Pig & the Lady in Chinatown.
I had wanted to check out their food there and also check out his show, so this meet up was perfect.
Rex ordered their weekly Banh Mi, which I think was a beef carpaccio.
I went with their Le Saigon Banh Mi--pork belly, ham, chicken liver pate, pickles, roast pork drippings...this sandwich was huge!
Sweet, salty, a little puckery & spicy.
All sandwiches come with an herb salad and either shrimp chips or their pho broth.
I had chosen broth, but I guess our waiter didn't hear me...(insert pouty face) so they served me shrimp chips.
Which was still delicious...
His photos titled "Rides" are up until the beginning of August or so, so if you have a chance to check them out, please do so.
My favorite shot is this one
Thanks Rex for a great lunch, it was nice catching up with you.
I'll be back!
