This Alief bakery and sandwich shop - located in Hong Kong City Mall - specialized in banh mi, or Vietnamese sandwiches. At Alpha Bakery you get a sandwich on a crunchy Vietnamese French bread roll that's baked on the premises, spread with butter and pâté and stuffed with roasted pork, shredded carrots, cukes, cilantro and jalapeño for half of the price of the sandwich chain product. You can't get a sweetened coconut rice dessert at Subway, either.
