[San Francisco - Mission] Duc Loi Supermarket - Mission Banh Mi

My friend, a local, took me to Duc Loi Supermarket right before my flight. In her words this is "probably the best banh mi" in SF.

For only $5 you get a very substantial had to have weighed about 4 pounds.

Where's your favorite banh mi from?!

Even though the banh mi is a little more expensive than other ones you can get in the city (going rate is around $3, I heard), the portions here are far more generous.

We got there pretty early, around 11:15, and they were just baking fresh bread. It was great! The bread was literally fresh from the oven when they made my sandwich.

The pork was very flavorful and tender and the vegetables were fresh and crisp and also very flavorful.

The ingredients are all sourced locally and the owner is very friendly.

The only downside of our visit is that we had to wait a while, but it may be because we were there very early.

They serve from 11AM - 6PM.

All sandwiches are $5 and there is a bit of variety on the menu.
The "authentic Vietnamese" is the most raved about sandwich, but I wasn't sure how well the head cheese and pate were going to travel, so I opted for the lemongrass bbq pork.

If you're vegetarian, there is a sandwich for you (veggies, tofu, portobella)!
The other two options are lemongrass chicken and fried chicken.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
