Incredible…and stupid. But what’s the expression? “A fool and his money are soon parted”? Despite what he said I have to believe that frightened tourists are buying them. Frightened of something that costs a dollar. And did you see the wine glasses? Oh please :slight_smile:

It’s a fancy pâté banh mi with truffle mayo, a big, fatty pork chop, 160 grams of foie gras, and two glasses of Prosecco. I’d say the people ordering that are far more likely effete foodies like me than scared tourists.

LOL. You’re right.

ETA: I tagged Andrea Nguyen on FB and will be interested if she replies.
