This week has been a blessing! I have been working non-stop, which I am rather exhausted today but I am off so I get to relax for the next 3 days, woot! I have received so many boxes filled with awesome food. I love coming home to a box it is such a great feeling ^.^ I will be making a post about all of my snail mails next week! I will also be giving away a snack box, you don’t want to miss out on this! Let me share with you the highlight of my week!
I have never had Pho in my meat eating days so this was a brand new experience. The fact that “Vegan Soup” was listed on the menu at an authentic Vietnamese bakery was the icing on the cake! They do care about us!
I went with Lee’s Combo #3 which included Vegan Pho, and half a Banh Mi sandwich [Tofu]. I also ordered an order of Tofu Spring Rolls with the combo!
Once again, I have never had a Banh Mi so this was also my first experience, hehe! For the Banh mi, you will need to omit their mayonnaise to make it vegan. The filling consisted of Pickled Carrots, Pickled Daikon, Cucumber, Salt and Pepper and Soy Sauce.
Verdict: The best sandwich I have ever had in my life. I may be exaggerating a little bit. Actually, I am not this Banh Mi was the best darn thing I have ever had, crunchy on the outside soft in the inside. The texture of the tofu was great, fried and lightly salted. I can’t even describe to you how it tastes. It is one of those thing where you “have to see it to believe it” kind of deal, hehe. The Pho was just WOW! It was amazing, filled with fresh vegetables in abundance. The soup was filled with carrots, green onions, cabbage, and lettuce with vermicelli noodles on the bottom topped with tofu with a side of bean sprouts, mint and a slice of lime.
The spring rolls were as equally good. They are wrapped in a rice paper with a cabbage filling; vermicelli noodles, green onions and tofu served with a peanut sauce and crushed peanuts.
The food was amazing and the service was great. Everyone at Lee’s Bakery was nice and on hand plus the food service was fast and delicious. I managed to finish everything! As a foodie enthusiast, I had to share the good news! So, on Wednesday, I went back to Lee’s Bakery with my sister and friend Loren! This time, I went with a Tofu Banh Mi.
Have you eaten at Lee’s Bakery? If so what did you think about the Vegan Pho?
