If I were a dude, I would be Anthony Bourdain
How many foodies do I have out there? I am not sure if I ever made it perfectly clear that I love to eat. If I have not, my apologies, and please let me spell it out for you...
I also just stumbled upon this blog called Bohemian Bites, and I am quite literally drooling at this moment as I stare at the photo of my favorite Czech dish, svíčková - Mmmm, come to momma, lover.
Bohemian Bites has a recent post of restaurant openings and food discoveries and I was surprised, and quite pleased, to see the Bánh mì sandwich (am a huge fan of this Vietnamese concoction). Essentially, it is a fresh, crusty French baguette filled with steamed, pan-roasted or oven-roasted seasoned pork belly, Vietnamese sausage, spreadable pork liver pâté, pickled shredded carrots, cucumber and daikon, cilantro & chili sauce. Now there are other variations as well since Bánh mì is a term for breads, but this is the classic.
So good I want to stick my face in it
Now I have yet to try Mr. Bánh mì, but if you do or have, I would love to hear what you think. He is located at Rumunská 30, Praha 2, Vinohrady and you can check him out on Facebook
PS a cold beer goes really well with Bánh mì, just sayin'.
