Guy Dimond - 4/5

Monday, October 04, 2010 - Owner Julie Vu has made great effort to make the tiny interior boutique-like. But above all, the Vu family have made a greater effort with their banh mi - Vietnamese-style filled baguettes - than some of their competitors...The fillings are assembled to order. The classic pork version, consisted of a smear of pate, a slice of pressed ham, roasted pork and the usual salad trimmings of pickled slivers of carrot and daikon with lettuce. Although not filled as generously as, say, the renowned version at Baoguette in New York, this version would pass muster in Hoi An market.

Gourmet Chick - 8/10

Wednesday, October 13, 2010 - Made to City Caphe's specifications the baguette has a hard, crispy exterior then is all soft, fluffy lightness inside. The filling of chargrilled pork was tender made with good quality meat and there was plenty of thinly sliced cucumber, carriot, daikon and fresh coriander to add some crunch and clean, fresh flavours to the roll. City Caphe does stock other lovely treats as well like steaming bowls of pho, fat, and translucent summer rolls stuffed full of salad, even home made cakes like banana bread but it is going to take a lot to lure me away from the banh mi.
