Are there any places in NYC that sell loaves of Vietnamese baguettes? I'm thinking of making my own banh mi this weekend.

I never realized there were special Vietnamese baguettes. I assumed banh mi places used the same baguettes as everyone else. "You learn something new..."

No, they are different, lighter and crisper due to the addition of rice flour to the dough mixture.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”
