Au Petit Cafe Vancouver, BC

January 28th, 2008 · No Comments

So I finally got to try the “best” vietnamese subs in Vancouver. The cafe is small and super busy and looks like your typical small zero-atmosphere chinese restaurant (people are definitely there for the food). I didn’t know what to expect given that I previously had vietnamese subs in Toronto where they are either pre-made in stacks or it takes seconds for them to make it. At the cafe, they make them as they are ordered (for both take-out and sit down) and toast the bread as well – so be prepared to wait a little while (not long – just a few minutes – but more than I expected). The subs ranged from approx $3.50-4.50 (the house ham and meatball sub). Overall, nice crispy bread and a good amount of meat although we felt they were skimpy on the vegetables. When they say hot peppers on the menu – they mean hot given that they put long slices of jalapenos (seeds included) in the sub. Tried the house ham/meatball sub and the vietnamese pork sub. Overall preferred the pricier ham/meatball sub. Was it the best I ever had – no, although it was pretty good. I just can’t stop comparing them to the $1-2 vietnamese subs that I could get in Toronto and I am not convinced that these subs are that much better. While I was waiting, I saw several orders of the beef stew being served – I will try that next time.
