Inexplicably Lame Banh Mi at Tigerlily
Clinton Hill / Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn), and it was yummy. I hope she changes the bread though as it was a bit too hard and rough on my mouth. There's a French bakery a block away, so I don't know why it'd be hard to get good bread. Actually I wonder if the problem is just that she doesn't have a good toasting oven. Also, the filling to bread ratio could be a bit higher. Other than that though, the flavors were great and it was just the right level of spicy. I also had some Vietnamese iced coffee, which is of course delicious, as you really can't go to a non-delicious place with condensed milk and espresso. So I'll probably be back because I want to try some of the shakes (such as the Papaya, Pineapple & Ginger* and the Mango, Coconut & Chili), but I, like the other reviewers, hope for some improvements!
