Bahn Baguette @ One Utama

Price Range: Mid-range 
Cuisine : Vietnamese 
Recommended For : An exotic alternative to Subway 
Catphobia-Friendly? : Very! 

We seem to be rather receptive to Vietnamese cuisine lately, and our current favourite haunt of the Viet kind: Bahn Baguette! Being colonized by the French has greatly impacted the foodscapes of Vietnam, where such treats as baguettes are a common sight. Couple that with fresh Vietnamese flavours and you’ve got yourself an effortlessly beautiful fusion of East and West.

Bahn Baguette, in our eyes, serves as an exotic alternative to Subway. They offer interesting daily promotions as well:

The ones we can’t seem to get enough of are Beef Teriyaki Banh Mi (Wednesdays) and Pineapple Tuna Bahn Mi (Fridays). Upon ordering, you will see them slicing open the fresh, crusty baguettes and delicately pack the preferred meats onto the bread, and topped with generous handfuls of coriander, shredded carrots, as well as sliced tomatoes and cucumbers.

One bite of the beef teriyaki sandwich is enough to alert your brain that you WILL be coming back here next Wednesday. Relish the sandwich as your teeth into the satisfyingly crunch baguette crust; to the flavour-packed beef teriyaki with its sweet and smokey marinade and its slight heat from the spring onions; to the fresh, crisp taste of the coriander and carrots that bind all the flavours together.

Pineapple tuna may seem like a rather odd mix of flavours, but are we glad they thought of it! The tuna mayo is infused with tiny pineapple cubes, which gives the standard tuna sandwich a rather Asian twist. This is due to the fact that, curiously, it tastes quite similar to assam laksa. You’ve got the sweet-sourness of the pineapples blending surprisingly well with the creamy fish filling, and it makes you wonder why you’ve never thought of it before.
