Vietnamese Sandwiches

So a couple days ago, I found this Vietnamese sandwich shop about ~30 minutes away from my house. Even though it's that far, I found it to be worth it. There were tons of Vietnamese sandwich shops where i used to live, so I was missing the taste. What makes Vietnamese sandwiches different than normal sandwiches, you say?
LOOK AT THAT, IT IS DELICIOUS. Just a sandwich with more vegetables in it, but it's great. (and cheap). Well not as cheap here, if you live in California though, it's common to see these in certain areas along with froyo (frozen yogurt) places and Tapioca drink shops.

It sounds weird if you haven't tried it, but Avocado smoothies are the best things ever. I highly reccomend them, despite how weird it sounds. I never get a positive reaction when i tell someone about avacado smoothies. Ever.
It's delicious though! I'm so deprived here. All the Vietnamese and good Asian food is so far away ;_; I find it funny, everyone I knew back home was Asian, and you go farther into the middle of the US and they all disappear.  During history class instead of Asians they call them "oritentals". I stifled my laughter hard. You don't see any black people here either. I think I've seen about 5 black people and I've been here around 4 months.

Anyway, I'm sorry but if your going to try tapioca drinks, Strawberry is probably the worst choice. I love normal strawberries, don't get me wrong, but strawberry boba is gross.

  5. Sorry but, green apple is the best for boba. Or just stick with some good ol milk tea.

  6. I agree with green apple being the best. I eat avocados raw, with savory food. I don't want to eat them in smoothies.

    Oh, how I envy you.

  8. There aren't any really great local restaurants here, so congrats on finding one.

    Loads of Asians in Florida, for some reason. Loads of other minorities too, actually. If you're really missing them I suppose you could borrow a few of ours.

    I agree with Pandor42, stick with some delicious milk tea.
