However, EU suggested to give Viet Sub a try last night. Viet Sub? I know what a Viet sub is but I've never had one before. While I was wondering about my "beef concern", EU said they offer chicken as well as Vietnamese ham. So, Viet Sub off we go...

- Viet subs are made freshly
- Specials are available on that white board (on the right)
- Vietnamese ham, onions, (slightly pickled) turnips, cucumbers and carrots served with two sauces, topped with cilantro and some salt and pepper
- The sauces taste like terriyaki sauce and sesame sauce. From the picture above, the light-orange colour sauce (on the left side of the bread) is the sesame sauce; the brownish one on the right side is the terriyaki sauce. They have pepper and a nutty flavour. Also they give a hint of sourness and sweetness to the bread. I like how the two sauces mixed well together; they taste yummy!
- Maybe because this is my first time having Vietnamese subs, I find the french bread really amazing! It is crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside. Yes, it will be pretty messy to eat the sub, like the one I had in Finch's Tea & Coffee House.
- Carrots, cucumbers and the onions taste fresh. They are crunchy; I especially like the flavour of the onions.
- The Vietnamese ham is underneath all the colourful ingredients. It is not very tasty but has a mild salty flavour.
I really like Viet Sub and will sure come back to try their other subs.
