While biting into a Lee’s sandwich and listening to Mile Davis’s solo, I was enjoying the best of both worlds. When Black folks took Western instruments and put their own sounds into them, they created jazz. When Vietnamese folks took French baguettes and put their own flavors into them, they created bánh mì. Isn’t life just beautiful when you take a second to appreciate it?
Big shoutout to Lee’s Sandwiches at Falls Church for supporting Liên Đoàn Hùng Vương. Your delicious bánh mì keeps our stomach stuffed and our scouting spirit soaring.
