I’m off to catch a flight to Singapore. The flight is in the afternoon and I have not have a confirmed ticket yet. Calling the reservation office yesterday, they told me I should have no problem getting a seat on the flight but I need to be there as soon as the checkin counter opens to get onto the wait list.
The family wanted to see me off at the airport. So, we decided grab something to eat at the airport while waiting for my flight to be confirmed. There’s this new Hue Cafe little shop we notice along No 3 Road each time we drive past the Richmond Center. We would not have given that place a second thought if not for the big sign that reads “Vietnamese Sub: 4 for $10″. It was just what we wanted — sandwiches to-go for the airport.
They have dark windows and you could barely see the insides. However, when we got in we were pleasantly surprised how clean and tastefully decorated they were. It’s much better than the many Vietnamese restaurants we frequented.
They have limited menu — primarily subs and pho. The prices were very cheap too. Their pho is only about $4.50 each. We ordered the 4 subs for $10 and decided to choose different types. We chose pork, chicken, beef and meatballs.
The bread is the baquette, hard crusted type. There are not much meat and you can see lots of the carrot, cucumber, etc.
The subs were surprising very good. It was just rightly moist which is due to the fish sauce they used.
All of us enjoyed it. Will certainly go back to the little shop and check out their cheap pho one of these days. The joint was owned by a friendly and charming young lady who had kids at the age of our boys. We chatted about our kids.
Here is their address: 6620, No 3 Road, Richmond, BC.
Stay tuned … I am away from home for the next two weeks on business in Singapore and also making a side trip to Malaysia to meet up with family and old friends. It’ll be a hectic trip but I am looking so much forward to this trip for sometime now.
