Located on Pacific Street in Yaletown, DD Mau is a “Bahn Mi” (Vietnamese Sandwich) quick service restaurant. All their sandwiches are served on French baguettes, but with Asian seasoning like lemongrass, kimchi or sweet chili aioli. DD Mau’s specials of the day are written on sheets of brown paper on the wall, the other menu options are on chalkboard.
DD Mau’s two most popular sandwiches are the Grilled Lemongrass Chicken and the BBQ Pork. As a result, those are the two sandwiches offered in VanEat.ca’s newest dining pass “Give Me Mau“. For $9.50, you will receive:
- 1/2 Grilled Lemongrass Chicken: grilled chicken thighs + pickled veggies + cilantro + sweet-chili aioli jalapenos
- 1/2 Crispy Roasted Pork: crispy roasted pork + sauteed scallions + pickled veggies + cilantro + garlic aioli jalapenos
- Smoothie, your choice of avocado or honeydeTranslated from Vietnamese, “Di Di Mau” literally means “Go Go Quick”. Our order was ready within a matter of minutes. There is limited seating at the restaurant (and my dog was waiting outside) so we got our sandwiches to go and ate at home.
