Bamboo Bubble Tea Vietnamese & Thai Food

So, my hubby and I were literally buying gas on Wednesday, when I looked across the street and saw this place. I was craving a Coconut bubble tea, so I told my hubby, I was going to walk over there and get us one. He would follow suit after finishing up at the gas station. For the life of me, I’m not sure why I didn’t take a photo of the store myself, but I found one on Yelp, to share with you…thanks Michelle S 🙂 It’s a VERY small store front. There’s literally 4 stools and 2 small tables, so you know most just take out their orders. Now, like I said, I went here with the notion of just buying bubble teas…I was wrong LOL Once I laid my eyes on the menu, and saw that they had banh mi  sandwiches, I was sold!! My hubby and I had always heard of these Vietnamese sandwiches, but we’d never tried one. So, I decided this was what we were having for dinner. And at $2.95 a pop, it was MORE then reasonably priced 🙂

I decided on getting the assorted banh mi with pate sandwich, which was also the most popular. It consisted of an assortment of cold cuts, pork pate (all made in house!), lettuce, cilantro (mmm…), sliced hot pepper and pickled veggies. I gotta say, it was pretty good. The spicy hot pepper and pickled veggies were a good contrast to the creamy garlicky pate and cold cuts. We’ll definitely go back there again, as the prices are very reasonable and the bubble tea was good too, but I’ve yet to have a bad bubble tea!! So if you’re ever in Mississauga, you should drop in, and give them a try. They’re located at Dundas and Erindale…across from the Shell gas station.


Viet Summer Fest 2012 @ Celebration Square

We were passing by Celebration Square, and noticed that there was some kind of festival going on. So, after our walk around the mall, we decided to check it out, and saw that it was the Viet Summer Fest.

We noticed there were 2 food stalls serving Vietnamese fare. So, we bought a beef ball skewer and a couple of spring rolls first. Unfortunately we gobbled those up before I remembered I didn’t take a photo LOL We then saw that they were also making fresh chicken spring rolls, and we wanted to try them out too. They were overflowing with rice noodles, cilantro and mint, which was a great combination. Personally, I prefer the shrimp version, but this chicken one wasn’t too bad either. They were also serving Vietnamese sandwiches, whiched look scrumptious, but by the time we noticed them we were already full LOL We’ll have to check them out next year for sure!!

Bon Appetit Everyone 🙂
