Maybe you know this, but maybe you don’t. Vietnam used to be a French colony, and those people still make some excellent French bread. You wouldn’t expect it in a land of noodles and pho, but it’s there.
And this, my friends, was the best meal I had there.
It had been a long, hot, intense day and a hot meal just wasn’t going to satisfy that day. So my relief was intense when our host pulled out the plates of fresh veggies, pineapple with the eyes cut out in a perfect spiral, sandwich fillings and… glorious, crusty bread. That sandwich was GOOD.
