Some co-workers and I went out for our first lunch adventure last week.
After a failed attempt at Sunflower - my fave Vietnamese restaurant in ATX (closed due to a power outage), we headed over to Tam Deli for banh mi.
I was carrying my DSLR (this time) for some photos I need to shoot of a work event later that night. When my veggie spring rolls appeared, I wanted to take a picture for the kathyphantastic blog.
The new co-workers were astonished by my ridiculous camera toting antics. Well, they'll just have to get used to it. For now, they think I'm a freak.
The co-workers asked if I was going to take a picture of my veggie banh mi. I assured them there was already a Tam Deli Banh Mi Pick Me Up post, and I'd put away my camera for the rest of lunch.
As for the spring rolls, I liked them, but they had some of that fake Chinese sausage taste. I've never been a big fan of faux meat with semi real meat taste - especially when it's Chinese. Some vegetarians love that stuff. Next time, I'll see if they can roll some for me without the faux sausage.
Both Meagan and Nick enjoyed their 10B (lemongrass beef) sandwiches - this seems to be a trend with people who have worked with me. Meagan also had the shrimp spring rolls, while Nick had a sweet rice and banana dessert dipped in sweet coconut milk. My hands were too full of banh mi to get a picture of that. Meagan and Nick each left Tam with a handful of cream puffs. Nick proclaimed that it would be the first of many banh mis for him. Banh mi win.
