A new Vietnamese sandwich restaurant recently opened in Tamuning (Cinema Arcade). I visited on a Sunday and they had only been open maybe just a week or two. They had spent some serious money on equipment(there is no other restaurant with the bread baking equipment they have to make bread for their famous Banh Mi sandwiches.
This little Vietnamese treasure located on the Ground Floor of the ITC Building next to the House of Brutus has been mentioned several times in this newsletter and I've written two complete reviews over the years.
I have to give a nod to MBJ for a small feature on developments in Yigo, with new establishments like Cafe Panadero, KFC, and VietBowl, which really caught my eye since there was a mention of a certain Vietnamese delicacy, Banh Mi (the Vietnamese Sandwich).
I had first heard about Pho Basi while listening to Ray Gibson describing his favorable dining experience there shortly after they had opened. They have only been open for about two months, so it was time to go and visit. We left the office (I'd invited Aileen to join me) as I needed to share this food experience.
Though I’d been to Saipan scores of times since Truong’s had opened here, I had yet to visit there to eat until recently. Thank goodness I was accompanied by my work colleagues who are always up to one of our great food sharing adventures!!
I’ve read many different articles about the health benefits of honey over white, granulated sugar. Honey is high in calories, as is sugar (a teaspoon of honey contains 22 calories; there are 16 calories in a teaspoon of sugar).
The last thing to come to mind is a winter wonderland of blankets of snow, Santas in hefty red costumes walking about, or snowmen and snow angels decorating the snow-covered streets. So what does Christmas on Guam look like?
