Review: Ba Le French Sandwiches

by gigi on January 29, 2008

One of Jenkins and my favourite places to go for Vietnamese subs is Ba Le right at the corner of Kingsway and Fraser.  We found out about this place a few years ago and it is a great place to go for cheap and delicious Vietnamese-style subs.  If you go between 12-1pm, it is usually packed with people waiting for their sub orders.

Ba Le’s main item are their subs but they also have other Vietnamese foods, such as desserts, sticky rice, and ham.  Right above the front counter though is the sub menu.  The subs all range between $2.50 to $3…pretty reasonable!

I had the “special” sub, which is $3 and has a combination of two types of cold cuts, along with the regular hot peppers, parsley, and pickled veggie mix.  I like this sub because the cold cuts are fairly light and the bread is very crispy.  Occasionally, it is loaded with too many hot peppers so I have to pick some out.  :)

Jenkins always orders the chicken sub, which is also $3.  It has the same mix of peppers, parsley, and pickled veggies and the chicken is lightly tossed with mayo.  I think this is also quite tasty, although the mayo does make the bread a little soggier than the “special” sub…although the bread is still pretty crispy overall.

Depending on how hungry we are, we usually eat between 1-2 subs per person.  There isn’t really a place to eat our subs at Ba Le so we usually take it home to Jenkins’ house and eat it there.  At $3 max per sub, this is definitely a place for good cheap eats.  Jenkins does note that he thinks the sandwiches have some amount of MSG in them because he is often thirsty afterwards.
