Of course, lest we forget, one relative old-timer, An Xuyen Bakery, has been quietly wowing Portland with some of the city’s best French bread since 1995. Specializing in Vietnamese-inflected guava cookies, durian cakes, and lotus paste–filled pastries, An Xuyen also churns out perfectly articulated French pastries like pâté chauds, cream puffs, and mini palmiers. And don’t miss the bakery’s spectacular banh mi sandwich, a national dish of Vietnam.
