Ba Le

5018 N Broadway St
Chicago, IL

M and I were running errands with new baby O and needed some lunch, so we tried bahn mi from Ba Le. We still had a couple more places to hit after I bought the sandwiches so it was probably another 30 minutes before we got home to eat them, but they were still delicious. I had the #1 special, which is your typical bahn mi - ham, pork pate, headcheese and pork roll along with pickled carrots and daikon, cilantro and jalapenos. M had a vegetarian bahn mi with fried tofu. I loved the crispy baguette paired with the savory meats, though I love cilantro so could have done with a little more. The jalapeno was really spicy so I removed most of it before I finished eating. For $2.95, it's cheap and yummy to boot.
