Top New York Bánh Mì Experts Participate in “Hay Qua!" Bánh Mì Tasting on June 27th!
Only A FEW DAYS LEFT to purchase tickets at regular price. LIMITED SEATING!

New York City, NY (June 20, 2009) – The elusive best Vietnamese sandwich, or bánh mì for fanatics, of New York will be within reach on Saturday, June 27th at the Bitter End (Greenwich Village). Some of New York’s top bánh mì creators are entering their wildly-popular masterpieces in the Tasting portion of “Hay Qua!” Mini-fest. The tasting will precede the decadent food-themed panel moderated by Serious Eats' Tam Ngo, speaking to the likes of Food Party's Thu Tran, An Nguyen Xuan of BEP, Food Blogger Mindy Lvoff, LUNCH blogger Yen Ha, and An Choi's Tuan Bui. Audience members will have the chance to savor the passion that goes into each layer, slice, and spread of this new foodie favorite.

Hungry fans can register to taste and judge the bánh mì, amidst the exhilarating line-up of creative Vietnamese American thinkers, dreamers, and champions on The Bitter End stage. Join the room full of bloggers, designers, architects, writers, chefs -- wide eyes, smiles, laughter, and that renewed sense of possibility and dreams. It's going to be a good Saturday.

As with all good things, tickets are going quickly due to popular demand and limited seating. Register today to save your seat, as you won't want to miss Tim Be Told bandmember Luan Nguyen, French-Vietnamese chef An Nguyen Xuan, Brooklyn Rail publisher Phong Bui, Obama campaign photographer Bao Nguyen, architect Yen Ha of LUNCH blog, filmmakers, singer/songwriters, among many others.

  1. Hi,

    I saw your post on my blog and feel free to add me to your list. It would be an honor since Vietnamese people really never get publicized anywhere.

    At this point our community is very small and I'll be on the lookout for new talent if I hear of someone.

    Awesome blog!

  2. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I DJ but I'm actually Thai not Vietnamese but the event sounds great!
