Saigon Sisters

One of the best vendors in the new Chicago French Market is Saigon Sisters. I went there at 1:00 PM on Friday and it was packed. I was going to quickly stop in and grab a sandwich to eat on the train. Yikes - there was a line so long it appears that a lot of other people have discovered how good they are as well.

I chatted with owner Mary Nguyen Aregoni briefly before I left. She and her sister Theresa have really found a home inside the Chicago French Market. Just goes to prove that great quality sells.

I tried the Porky Banh Mi and it was absolutely one of the best that I have ever had. It’s a little bit more pricy than some of the other restaurants that serve Banh Mi but the quality of the meat is so much better. I’ll have to ask them how they cook their pork because the flavor is amazing.

Don't miss any of the great vendors at the Chicago French Market. It's located at 131 N. Clinton.

Bon Appetit!
