Bale is probably most well known for their Vietnamese bahn mi sandwiches. There is a variety of options including roast beef, turkey and tofu. The sandwiches usually come with daikon and mayonnaise but you can tell them exactly how you would like it made.
I met up with Kacey, a UH Manoa student having lunch at Bale, and she told me what she thinks of Bale.
“I love the French bread the sandwiches are made on,” Kacey said. “It is always fresh and soft. Actually, all of the bread is good.”
Also, at only about $5 for a sandwich, it is one of the cheapest places to eat on campus and that is always good for college students. They also accept UH dining meals and points.
Kacey also said that she likes the atmosphere and seating in Manoa Gardens. “Even during the middle of the day you can have a beer with lunch and watch the game with friends.”
Kacey said that she would recommend the sandwiches as well as the tapioca, a dessert pudding.
