Wife and I were travelling back from Southern Oregon and stopped for lunch. We picked Bon Mi randomly. She is Korean and I wanted to try a Vietnamese sandwhich. We there around lunch time in late July. It was busy. Small restaurant, very clean, orderly and efficient. I ordered the hot and spicy pork sandwhich, she ordered Pho. Sandwich was about 8 or 9 dollars, pretty sizeable, but no sides. What I noticed about the sandwich is that it tasted a lot like Korean bulgogi. Before leaving, the counter clerk asked me if I liked it and I told her, it tasted a lot like bulgogi, and she said, "yeah, my Mom is Korean." Vietnamese barbecue is pretty tasty too, but they use a different marinade, fish sauce being a main ingredient. The sandwich also had simple pickled white radish, a sort of simple syrup and vinegar, similar to Daikon, but the Korean version is different in that it is bigger with a slightly different taste.
My point is not that it was bad. In fact it was quite good. It just wasn't a Vietnamese sandwich.
