I was reading Nancy Leson's Blog: All You Can Eat where she mentioned a second location for a Vietnamese Deli, Seattle Deli.
Nancy Leson was the restaurant critic for the Seattle Times where she reviewed restaurants incognito. She came out of the shadows to write about food, but gave up the restaurant critic position.
I was in the area of the new location so I stopped by to try out the food.
My purchases... starting with the sandwich and going clockwise.
Bahn mi Dac Biet (sandwich special)
Styrofoam plate of rice noodles and dumplings
Pork-filled puff pastry
Hom Bao (Savory bun)
Sandwich special - is usually a Vietnamese cold cut sandwich with three types of cold cuts.
Chicken loaf, Vietnamese style ham and headcheese.
Instead of mayo, this sandwich had butter, Maggi (?) and pate.
Dressed with pickled carrots, daikon, cucumbers, cilantro and sliced jalapenos.
The puff pastry filled with a pork meatball. The item was identified as Pate Choux. Is this correct? I don't know.
Hom Bao... filled with pork, Chinese sausage and hard boiled egg.
Rice flour noodles and dumplings with a diluted fish sauce dipping sauce.
