The Banh Mi Economy

It's finally happened. The rising cost of fuel has bumped up the price of my favorite banh mi sandwich. I typically get these crusty French baguettes with chicken and pickled vegetables at the Cam Huong take out spot in Oakland's Chinatown. Just last week, the price of a Vietnamese banh mi went up! From $2.50 to $2.75. That's right, a whole quarter! In the consistently cheap world of the banh mi, this is a major increase and a sure sign that the rising cost of living fueled by, well, high fuel costs has affected everyone. :(

Cam Huong, 920 Webster St. (between 10th and 9th Streets), Oakland. PH: 510.444.8800
