When the 'Hot Baguettes Now' Sign Flashes, Get a Taste of Vietnam
An eye-popping-green honeydew drink and a fresh báhn mì make for an unexpected quick meal in the southeastern suburbs of Phoenix, AZ... If you're in the area and want a change of pace from enchiladas and burgers, check out Lee's Sandwiches in Chandler. While not a mecca for Asian food, the Phoenix area has become home to many immigrants...and so now you can pop into this oasis of Franco-Vietnamese flavors. Yes, Lee's may be a chain (mainly located in California), but--a Vietnamese-sandwich-chain...in Arizona? Who'd have guessed? The baguettes are as 'croustillant' as the best you'd find in France, and the jalapeños and cilantro that dress the bánh mì are a reminder that the Southeast Asian and local Mexican palates have a lot in common...
