I featured this on my Instagram and Facebook over the holidays (which you should ALL FOLLOW! PLEASE!). It is the bulgogi breakfast bun from Bun Mee's new location in the terminal 3 at SFO. As a breakfast sandwich it is full of meat and egg, two things you really need to get going in the morning, especially on a long flight. This one was layered with spicy bulgogi beef, an over easy fried egg, kimchi, cucumber, carrots and pickled daikon radish--much like a banh mi sandwich. I did like the spice kick to wake me up in the morning though, as you can see, it is super messy so I would recommend eating it before you get on a plane. Plus, the aroma of it, while generally pleasant, may not be to everyones liking on a closed in plane cabin. It is definitely an interesting take on your everyday breakfast sandwich. Not sure if they are selling this at their three locations in town yet as I don't see it on their online menu, so for now, it is SFO specific. It is available all day too. My only quibble would be it is the same price as their bacon and egg breakfast version of a traditional banh mi which is both larger and has more fillings. Value you wise it slips a little, as do most things at an airport. But if you want something different I think either one of them is worth a try if you are flying out. Now, on to the news!

That's it for now, stay tuned this week as I actually hit up one of those new, now, next spots not too long after they opened. So not me but I'm stepping out of my zone just for you!
