On a Mission

List of things to do today:

  • Drive youngest daughter to school. Done.
  • Doctor’s appointment for routine visit. Done.
  • Take eldest daughter to stock up on health and beauty aids before going back to school. Done.
  • Find Kim’s on St. John Street in Portland to get banh mi for lunch.

Banh mi


There really is a lot to find in Portland. I remember they used to promote it as “a lot of fun for a little city.” Thanks to the Internet finding little treasures like Kim’s Gifts is a lot easier and I’ve been meaning to get there after reading about banh mi in Bon Appetit and The New York Times. Prices have gone up a little in the four years since the Portland Psst! post was written, but the sandwiches are still tasty and cheap ($2.95 for the special – three kinds of pork). I think I’ll pass on the coconut juice next time, but you can bet there will be a next time.

And the day’s only half over.

  1. You definitely have to check out the Korean taco place on Congress Street. It’s called Gogi. We ate there this past summer and loved it.
