I am not a big breakfast person. In fact, I don’t like breakfast at all.  Orange juice, it’s nice with a little Vodka, I like to marinate my carnitas in it but, it’s such a strange custom to start your day with a big glass of OJ. Are people not brushing their teeth?

Sure I will eat a bagel with some white fish or perhaps some sturgeon or salmon but, that’s about as breakfasty as I get.  A morning cheeseburger, sounds good to me.

As I have mentioned, I drive through Chinatown quiet a bit.  Is there anything better than  a nice container of Pork Bun or Bun Cha for breakast?  Bun is pronounced Boon.

So, we stopped in at Paris Sandwich this morning like we often do.  I picked up some shrimp spring rolls for the Mrs. some sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf with beans and pork and finally a Bun thit nuong for me.

The Bun cha there is really nice. As you can see below. Here you have pork, a little egg roll, peanuts, Thai Basil, cilantro, bean sprouts, rice noodles, hot sauce and Nuoc Mam Cham, Nuoc Mam Cham is that sauce in the bottom left corner. It’s the slightly sweet and sour sauce that accompanies many Vietnamese Dishes. It is part Fish Sauce, part sugar, part lime, part water, sometimes with a little chile.  It’s delicious

The price, it’s $5.50.  So much better and more healthy than a stupid pancake.

This will obviously not be my last time visiting this place. I will post more photos next time.
