I went out searching for another beautiful Vietnamese sub sandwich. This time I followed up on Beyond the Rhetoric – my fellow foodie’s recommendation and stopped at Ba Lé on Main Street just south of Hastings Street.
Ba Lé is a simple affair. Vietnamese sandwiches done quickly. You walk up to the counter, tell the man which sandwich you want, hand over the cash (cash only place) and wait a couple of minutes for your sandwich to be prepared.
Being a first timer I took a risk and asked which sandwich he recommended. He said the barbecue pork or lemongrass chicken sandwiches were my best choice.
I went with the barbecued pork sandwich and was not disappointed. A decent amount of fillings inside a perfectly crispy French baguette. I would have liked a little more of the barbecued pork but for $5…this is a very good sandwich value.
I will return and have no hesitation in recommending the Ba Lé Sandwich Shop.
- Ba Lé is located at 638 Main Street in Vancouver.
