The sandwich's compact form makes for easy one-handed munching, freeing up the other hand to direct traffic or an orchestral performance of "Musetta's Mayonnaise Waltz." See what a free hand can do for you with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of casual Vietnamese fare and bubble-tea smoothies at Indochine Banh Mi on South Park Street. Winner of the first ever Forky from Haliforks, Indochine Banh Mi serves up a fusion of Asian flavours packed into a slew of banh mi, the Vietnamese version of the submarine sandwich. These submersible flavour vessels are fashioned from 8” French baguettes liberally stuffed with a bevy of locally sourced, unprocessed fillings, such as chicken, pork, beef, seafood, tofu, and veggies. With the main attraction sandwiched in, the remaining bready real estate is zoned into districts of fresh pickled carrot and daikon, onion, cucumber, chilies, and cilantro. A filling yet healthy lunch choice, the banh mi typically has approximately one-fourth the calories of a fast-food hamburger, and the vegetarian versions typically contain less calories than most green salads or runway models. To wash down the Eastern wonder, Indochine also serves bubble-tea smoothies made with fruit and unsweetened fruit juice, without the use of syrups, flavoured powders, or whispered sweet nothings.
- Indochine completely blasts the sadness out of sandwich options with its fresh pickled veggies, marinated meats, sate and lemongrass, chilies and sauces, all on fresh baguettes. It’s real food in heaps and chunks, not over-processed slices of pressed meat loaves. – Haliforks
