Bahn Mi and Jury Duty

I had jury duty earlier in the week. I would have liked to sit on one of the cases if I had nothing else to do, but alas.

I got Bahn Mi on my lunch breaks.

The closest place I could find through Yelp was Sau Voi.

Very authentic-looking. Most of the store is taken up with DVDs.

The sandwich was respectable. The crispy bread is key. The crumbs splintering off the sandwich attracted a crowd of sparrows which are always nice. An aggressive albino pigeon, however, put an early end to my meal.

I didn't get picked on my second day of jury duty, and they let us out for good. I decided to celebrate by going to Bahn Mi Saigon Bakery, our favorite Bahn Mi place.

They moved and totally upgraded their establishment. They kept the jewelry counter, and I think even the jewelry is nicer. The sandwich is still awesome, though I think I will not order it spicy again.
