@Nort:
I think the only Vietnamese food I'm familiar with are nems. As far as I can tell, 'banh mi' refers to either 'bread' or sandwich and is not particularly Vietnamese to start with.

People can have one-sided stories about most countries, but, for America outsiders have generally multi-sided views of the music and the films but the food as far as I can tell.

As I understand, you are either unfamilar with the idea of peanut butter pie or unappreciative of its taste. I've only heard about it myself.

So you always season your meat in the same way?

Could you make your own grits and scrapple?

I didn't realise steak sub existed.

@finlay:
Maybe there's an alternative name for it. It could be potentially material for the 'What do you call it' thread.

The recording of actual Indians struggling to narrate the story themselves is so funny to me it's priceless. They sound exactly like classic IIT grads. ("But the 14th century was recently!").

Yeah, nems are quite like spring rolls.

Wow, your description of banh mi seems even more restrictive than the definition. My initial hypothesis would be that (at least some) Vietnamese Americans heavily specialised.

Peanut butter pie sure has the potential to be particularly thick. The peanut butter pie recipes I have found involve mixing the peanut butter with sugar and cream cheese (e.g. ), thereby reducing the thickness of it. I like peanut butter in sannies/sandwiches, but only combination with something else, usually jam or honey, although I have occasionally had it with chocolate or banana.

When you eat at other people's places, how do you feel about the seasoning?

Scrapple looks like square sausage/lorne sausage/etc that we have in Scotland ()

If steak sub is associated with Philadelphia, would they not eat cream cheese with it?

From what I've heard (only hearsay though), Norway seems bad for abandonning its traditional fare. Réunionese people I know went there, and were disappointed to be pointed at burger joints and kebab places when asking for Norwegian restaurants.

This discussion of banh mi reminds me of this amazing restaurant near where I live. It's this hole-in-the-wall that's a combination Vietnamese restaurant, barbecue restaurant, and... cellphone store?? You can get a banh mi with smoked brisket on it and it's one of the best things I've ever tasted.

I actually have had peanut butter pie once, and Nort's right, in my opinion. Just too overpowering for an entire pie, although a small sliver of it was pretty delicious.

"Philadelphia" cream cheese is just a brand name. It's not actually from Philadelphia as far as I know. (also, cream cheese on a steak sandwich?? Now that would be an unexpected combination.)

I've never seen banh mi at any Vietnamese restaurant.

There are plenty of (Southern!) Vietnamese immigrants here, yet it seems difficult to get a good bánh mì. However, in the Bay Area, where some of my relatives used to live, it is definitely possible to get a good one, and there are restaurants that serve it, too.

Just looked up chè

I don't think I have ever encountered a specifically Vietnamese restaurant, of any stripe.

Patterns of migration, I guess.

To be honest, I don't think I'd been to a Vietnamese restaurant for many years, either. All the Vietnamese-owned restaurants I knew of were basically Chinese restaurants that served a little bit of Vietnamese food as well.

In Germany, you'll find Vietnamese restaurants in every city and biggish town. Vietnamese in Germany are mostly South Vietnamese refugees who arrived in the West in the 70s or Northern Vietnamese guest workers in East Germany who stayed on after reunification.

Pretty much every time I write a post on this forum, I'm sitting in front of my computer in my room at the back of the house. Just out the window, I can see the back of my Sino-Vietnamese neighbors' house. They speak Teochew and (to a lesser extent, IIRC) Vietnamese. When I was growing up, they frequently had relatives staying with them who spoke little or no English. They once briefly had some cousins over who also spoke no English but did apparently speak French and perhaps German.

So, after a fun week in the UK seeing friends and castles, I had quite a "fun" adventure getting back to Luxembourg yesterday!
– I arrived at the train station a few minutes late for the Eurostar check-in due to Tube mishaps, meaning that I couldn't board the train. Fortunately, not all hope was lost, as I just needed to switch my reservation, but it cost me about £30 to get on the next train (two hours later). At least I wouldn't miss the last train that day back to Luxembourg.
– After mishap #1, just after leaving Brussels-South station, the train got stopped for forty minutes "because there was somebody on the tracks". Ended up having to divert via Leuven, which wasn't too bad, but we still had that delay.
– Then, after rolling for a while, we got stopped for about an hour between Jemelle and Libramont because a train in front of us had caught fire.
– Finally, we arrived in Arlon, and the train wouldn't continue past Arlon! There was a bus to take us to Luxembourg, but that added extra time.

Ended up getting back home at 2 in the morning and woke up a few hours later with a cold. Joy.

Well, I imagine once the first few immigrants get established in a particular business, subsequent ones are likely to enter the same industry (either because they see their fellow countrymen succeeding at it, or because they work for/with their fellow countrymen initially), and over time it just becomes ingrained as a viable career path among that community.

Ooh, upon googling it, apparently Apparently the actress Tippi Hedren was working with helping female Vietnamese refugees in California get jobs, and when some commented on her manicure, they got the idea to learn to do nails and pretty quickly dominated the business.
