I’ve been craving all week for one of these.

Banh mi sandwiches, a gift from Saigon to the rest of the world, are a fusion of French and Vietnamese cuisines.

The French baguette is made lighter, fluffier, with a delicately crunchy crust by using rice flour along with the traditional wheat.

The improved product is sliced open and slathered with spiced up mayonnaise sauces. Then it’s stuffed with grilled, fried, or roasted pork, chicken, duck, or beef, pork bellies, cold cuts, liver pate, tofu, fried egg, sometimes all of the above! Pickled shredded carrots and white radishes complement the meats nicely, along with fresh cilantro and jalapeno peppers. So satisfying.

This fabulous version is from Dinosaur’s in the SF Castro. Grilled pork.

But, You’re Not Gay, Are You? SF Pride 2012

Youre not gay are you pride 2012 26431711_324945921325726_5713852386963881984_n

This gorgeous man was walking arm-in-arm with an attractive lady friend at gay pride 2012.

There were several other women with them, so I asked the entire group if they would pose for a snapshot.

The women were delighted, and quite rambunctious if not inebriated.

After about a dozen shots, I summoned the nerve to ask “the handsome man” for a few more shots by himself.

Only briefly hesitant, he stepped right up to the challenge, his rowdy posse cheering him on.

He put his hat and sunglasses on, but I guess that wasn’t what I was focusing on.

This image is heavily altered. I had almost as much fun manipulating it as when I originally took the photo.

You can see the original unaltered version, and hundreds more like him in my virtual gallery:
