From November 2005 “Eating Wheaton”
Wheaton also has a couple of outposts for those delicious French-Asian hybrids, Vietnamese sandwiches. Hung Phat Asian Grocery sells them wrapped in white butcher paper at lunchtime for $2 each. Crusty French sub rolls are layered with thin slices of pork, two kinds of Vietnamese pâté, carrots, cucumbers, onion, and cilantro for a satisfying crunch. Asian sodas–I like the fizzy aloe drinks–are the perfect foil. For dessert, smooth white buns with intricate red designs "stamped" on top are a child's sweet that grownups can enjoy. The texture is marshmallowy, the fillings fruity.
