Damn you nytimes for putting the idea of craving Viet sandwiches right now! They’re a bit behind on that right now here in Berlin. Can somesome get me a cart and some legit pate and good Viet style baguette so we can make millions here. The Rosenthaler crew would gobble it up. They have almost everything to make it here, except the good bread…
One that note- Viet peeps here are weird.
Not use to Not being able to speak Viet w them, When I speak Viet to them, they speak German back or English with a weird German/Viet accent or STARE at me and then speak really fast and then run off. I cant understand you! (with the acception of that one waitress at M.Vuong with great English- but I still hate her cause she wouldnt let me get tap water, not her fault I know, they’s bourgjjj and want to charge 2 euros for .59 cent per L mineral wasser mit a grapefruit slice).
Most are northerners so they have a weird accent in Viet anyway, but seriously- stop acting all leering communist grandma on me with them stares, I get enough stares from all the other fuckas!
And why are these stares performed by younger people or men under 60!? where are the grandmas?! How come they arent in the restaurants?! Is the German welfare that good- that they dont even care to decorate the store? What’s wrong with you Germans? You dont know the authenticity you’s missing!
And dont chu talk behind my back- I can hear you in 2.5 languages, especially the one you use most to chide at peeps! If I want backhanded gossip I rather risk feeling like someone will steal my macbook w all my dirty mansmut and go to Vietnam, where I can at least appreciate being semi exotic Japo/rean landlost traveler to the motherland, rather than being talked about like an anderer when I am just like you- but twice- from a foreign land- to a foreign land- away from vauge home. Ok, maybe Im not exactly your sitch… but Im still right!
now someone please get me a Vietsandwich before the time I have a career here.
