RED Quick Bite #69: The Bahn Mi Sandwich at Asian Kitchen with Cameraman Dana

In this Quick Bite, our cameraman, Dana, tries a Bahn Mi sandwich at Asian Kitchen! This is a continuation of our series recapping our visit to Tampa, Florida for our half marathon at the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Weekend!

This restaurant takes a variety of Asian influences and puts a unique, fast, and fresh take on them. They cleverly titled this sandwich the “Stand Bahn Mi” on their menu. As a child of the 80’s, this made me smile and think of the movie of the same name from that decade.  You can choose your protein, and my cameraman decided on chicken.  Then Lisa Larkin, owner of Asian Kitchen, told us that they would use chicken thighs to make the sandwich!  That was so smart because the meat was tender and juicy. (Can you tell that the cameraman let me have a bite or two?)

Be sure to drop by Asian Kitchen if you are in the area.  The food is amazing. (Did we mention they do their own smoked meats, original sauces, and dry rubs for their dishes?)

Be sure to visit Asian Kitchen’s website or their Instagram (which had our mouths watering before we even arrived in the Tampa Bay area!)

Thank you, Lisa, for the outstanding dishes and for welcoming us in like family!
