365 in Barcelona 

About a few blocks from Parc de Joan Miro and  Barcelona Sans train station, Hubby and I dropped by 365 to grab our lunch for the train. Seeing many locals there, we had to stop by and find out why this was their “Go To” place. 

 

Upon arrival, the first thing I noticed were the beautiful baguettes. The loaves, boules & sliced bread looked just as lovely and delicious!

The Cambodian Take on Bánh Mì

Bánh Mí – the Vietnamese Sandwich – is my all-time favorite lunch item. Growing up in Southern California, I could always get it freshly made at any sandwich shop in Little Saigon or my Grandma’s house.

Nam Pung Sandwich Shop in New York City is one of my Go-To places for a sandwich that takes me back to my childhood. Nam Pung does an amazing, modern Cambodian take on the Bánh Mí . One of their signature sandwiches that I’m crazy about is the Five-Spice Glazed Pork Belly sandwich.

Kopitiam in Chinatown

I discovered Kopitiam, this hidden gem, during one of my walks in Chinatown. It’s a small “stop and go” place that serves typical Malaysian dishes for breakfast and snacks. It’s run by a Malaysian family, and their kitchen is the size of my bathroom…Tiny! Resourceful, creative…their food has to be authentic and good. I made a mental note to return.

I went back and fell in love with the place. My prior thoughts were also correct. This is now one of my top 10 places in Chinatown.
