Nah but I made lasagna yesterday and realized I left the ricotta at the store, and just did a bechamel with an italian blend of cheeses, **** was creamy and delicious. Topped with Fresh Mozzarella. Might start doing that instead going forward.
You just happened to have bechamel on hand? Pics?

Tried it three different times three different items. All trash!!! And I like weird ****.

Edit: No disrespect to my Filipino folks by saying “weird” but that spots representation of food is weird. My sisters half Filipino and her pops has shown me real Filipino food.
None taken, dude. I’m Filipino, and I don’t really mess with jolibee these days. It’s just childhood memories. They are weird though. Filipino food in general is weird as hell anyways, my G. Not a lot of people can stomach it.

Was it your first time? Never heard of anyone comparing it to a cheesesteak. It’s more of an Asian style cold cut combo with pate for the OG version, followed by grilled chicken or pork. A freshly baked crispy baguette makes a big difference.

^ ya it was the first time i had it... the taste is nothing like a cheesesteak... i was just comparing it to the shredded beef which is similar to a cheesesteak... but ingredients and taste is different... it was definitely a good sandwich and something i would have again though

Ahh gotcha. Was the place Americanized or an actual Vietnamese own joint? Shredded beef isn’t commonly used. You gotta get it from a more traditional Vietnamese shop.

Edit: Just noticed it was from the US Open.

In New Orleans, there are places that make Po Boy and Banh Mi mashups. I haven't been there yet, unfortunately but I am eager to try.

There is a Vietnamese enclave there supposedly
Somewhat off topic...but there was a spot in Oakland across from the Burger King near the 23rd ave exit, it was half taqueria and half Banh mi shop. They sold carne asada Banh mi and other meat like al pastor. Everything you could get in a burrito, they could make it into a Banh mi. It’s no longer around tho.

I didn't know about that place. I am surprised we do not see more mashups in the Bay Area. It is usually Korean Tacos and that is about it.

I guess it’s tough combining diff cultures into one with food around The Bay. People enjoy food the way it is here. If there is a mash up, it’s usually just a novelty and once they tried it they don’t go back.

Haven’t really seen much Korean tacos places here. There was one on Mission St in Hayward but I can’t find it on Yelp anymore. It was located in a weird spot and the set up was strange. There wasn’t much else around. They made bulgogi burritos, tacos, bulgogi quesadillas etc.

I had Korean tacos at a couple food trucks and at the Korean booth in the Chabot Public Market. I don't think any of them were really a Mexican & Korean fusion. They were probably all Korean and put their food in a tortilla.

Lol...yea I could see that. Haha

Is the place in Chabot Public Market called Mama Cho’s? They have the Kalbi short ribs burrito, that looks like a real mashup between the two. I’ve only tried their marinated meat to grill at home, but haven’t tried their tacos or burritos.

Yeah that's the place. It is good but a bit overpriced IMO. That whole food court is overpriced actually. I like the Dole Whip from the Poke place though.
