Oh Mai!

My friend San San said there are good bagels in Midway.  I said “ha! You wouldn’t know a good bagels if it hit you in the head!”.  She’s from Massachusetts.  And she’s Asian.  I’m from Eastern Massachusetts, and by that I mean Boston.  And I’m Jewish.  Now, when she told me about the best Banh Mi at Oh Mai in Salt Lake I said “I believe every word you say…and I want to go to there”.  And I did.  And Oh Mai!  It was everything she said it would be.  After a few bites of my Honey Sweet Pork Banh Mi my tongue was tingling.  And by the time I ate my last bite it was satisfyingly on fire.  And as I ate my masterpiece of a sandwich, chewy bread, sweet pork, vinegary dressing, I kept thinking just one more bite.  One more perfectly crunchy on the outside and pillowy soft on the inside bite.  San San told me the sandwiches were so big she never finishes hers and she brings the rest home to her husband. I got Jason his own because there was no way I was going to share.  I guess that’s why she’s a size 2 and I’m a size 10…

    We just had Oh Mai for dinner to celebrate this post. I went vegetarian all the way. Pho and veggie rolls. So much flavor in the vegetarian Pho! Tofu, rice noodles, crunchy bean sprouts, makes it a melange of textures and flavors. And the veggie roll with the rice powder crunchies are so tasty!
