Au Petit Cafe

I'm not dead!! I have been really busy studying for my finals the last week. I've been living at UBC! Got 1 more on monday and then I'm done! Now that I got a little break where I can actually sleep in, I'm going to update my blog for all you loyal fans out there. ;)

Au Petit Cafe on 4851 Main Street

Went to Au Petit Cafe about a week ago with James and Gerald. I've been here twice for lunch and it's always packed with a lot of people coming in for takeout too. The first time I came, they ran out of homemade ham and I got one of the last fresh french breads that comes with their vietname subs. We got here earlier this time and got a House Special sub and shared some spring rolls:

Spring Rolls

House Special Sub

I love vietnamese joints - the springs rolls are always so darn good! Haven't had bad ones yet...*knocks on wood*. These were good, they were pretty meaty which is always a good thing! I got a House Special Sub with jalapeno peppers - these were hot! I know I know! I already complained about Nando's being too hot and now this, maybe I'm not as much of a hot shot at eating spicy stuff as I thought. I ate half the sub with it, and it was good but the delicious taste of the sub was being replaced by burning so I took it out of the other half. *hangs his head in shame*. The sub was really good and the fresh french bread makes a huge difference...the homemade ham and meatball inside was tasty. Makes me want one right about now.

Spring rolls were $5.50 and the House Special sub was $4 (most expensive one too!).

Nice lil' place indeed. Homey too. Good consistent and totally cheap fare.

Ever tried the hot torta subs across the street at Nuffy's Donuts ? They run around $3-4 each. Then wash them down with a few 'nuts !
