Cer Te (on 55th btw. 5+6th) introduced their sandwich of the month for March yesterday, and unlike last month’s “Chubby Chinese Girl” (which was named after the blog of the same name), “The Fall of Saigon” has not been universally accepted.  Lunch’er “Masto” is a fan:

“I thought the Fall of Saigon tastes great. It’s buffalo chicken on something like a kaiser roll with lettuce, and julienne carrots and cucumber. Pretty far off from a banh mi flavor and texture wise, but I don’t think that was the point.”

But not everybody agrees.

From Lunch’er “Sushiburger”:

“I would have to disagree… I was expecting a banh mi.. and nothing about it is really banh me.. the buffalo taste overpowers everything.. the chicken flavor is good, but the bread is not anything to write home about.. no texture.. it was fine.. but.. wouldn’t order it again.. can’t wait for thursday for the chubby chinese girl sandwich again..”

And what about the name?!? Lunch’er “Ceh” chimes in with his critique…

“Boy…who came up with the name for that? Next they’ll have a maki roll called the ‘Fat Man’ or ‘V-J Day’ Bukkake Udon… or a French Dip named the ‘Waterloo.’”

Mmmmmm. French dip (with Napoleon ice cream for dessert!) Has anybody else sampled the “Fall of Saigon”? Put your thoughts in the comments…
