Ba Le : some of the best cheap Vietnamese sandwiches in Uptown

Ba Le is a Vietnamese sandwich shop located at the corner of Broadway and Argyle (5018 N. Broadway).  It serves up some of the tastiest cheapest sandwiches you can find in Uptown, or dare I venture Chicago at large?  All the sandwiches start with a baguette and are stuffed with a variety of eats and vegetables.  There are 11 different sandwiches to choose from, including my favourite Banh Mi Thit Nuong or B.B.Q. Pork which comes with sliced pork, carrot, radish, jalapeno, onion and cilantro, and they range in cost from 2.95 to 3.25.   This price makes me giggle when they then offer the deal of Buy 5 Get 1 Free, but require a fine print note that reads “free on lowest price sandwich.”

The combination of fresh bread and spicy pork (but do watch out for the jalapenos, we got an extra heavy dose last time which can be a little intense) just melds so perfectly in this quick and easy food stop. I picked up some sandwiches and a few egg roll appetizers before heading out on Friday to the Reeling Film Fest at Film Row Cinema located at Columbia College. And you should pick some up before you head out to your next event! I highly recommend it!

Ba Le makes me smile – yummmm! It’s like the Vietnamese answer to Jimmy Johns. I’m certain I will get my ass kicked for that comparison. Hugs to you foodie girl!
