It was a pouring, rainy day and my friends and I were planning to meet up at Burgoo. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, there was an hour wait, and none of our stomaches could wait that long! Instead, we went down on Main Street and went to a Vietnamese restaurant instead- Au Petit Cafe.
Au Petit Cafe is famous for their Viet subs (Banh Mi). I was tempted to order a bowl of pho instead since I was cold, but their subs are supposed to be extremely delicious. so I ordered a house special- French Bread with Home Made Ham, House Meat Ball, Vegetable, and Hot Peppers ($5.)
The sandwich is placed on a French bread. I heard that the French bread is ordered from Granville Island. It was warm and toasty, and the meats inside were soft and tender. I loved the sauce they added as well! The jalepeno peppers were a bit spicy, and I only had one. This was a heartwarming sandwich and it was exactly what I needed. For $5, this was a perfect lunch.
Out of a group of five, four of us ordered viet subs, while one ordered a bowl of pho with beef balls and rare beef. Here’s a snapshot of a delicious hot bowl of pho on a cold day:
I wish I could come to Main Street more often to try out the food around there, and also come back here to try other viet subs. I recommend Au Petit Cafe for a cheap yet satisfying meal.
This place accepts cash only.
