Pork Roll w/Pate at Lee's Sandwiches
No bueno, Lee's. We love our banh mi -- LOVE -- but there just isn't enough flavor on this little baguette baby. The pate packs a punch, but the pork roll is bland and chewy. The great thing about even a mediocre banh mi sandwich is that you've always got the spicy-crisp vegetable awesomeness, jalapeno and pickled daikon and carrot with sprigs of cilantro, sometimes mint, and more. Lee's throws onions into the mix, but dynamic balance is still not achieved. The bread is steady, super crisp on the outside with a nice flavor, maybe a little too dry. There are other sandwiches at Lee's. Order them.
