This page is for discussing the contents of Huong Lan Sandwiches.

There was a Huong Lan Sandwiches in Davis that closed in 2006. Now a new one is coming, in the location of the recently closed International Bistro. Suggestions for how to preserve the old information while bringing in the new? —CovertProfessor

  • Since the business could be completely different after so many years, maybe it would be fairest to create a temporary page for the old business and then re-integrate all the info later on once it's determined what's similar and what's different. Eventually, if it turns out they are both part of the same small chain, everything should probably be on a single page with a little historical blurb at the bottom. -ScottMeehleib
  • Since they are two totally different subjects, they should be two different entries. Unless they are a chain (they appear to be, see next comment), which doesn't seem to be the case. In which case, SM's idea sounds better. Of course, you then have all the variations possible: this is the next generation trying their hand at a business, etc. As is often the case, it would be easier if some of the details were known. Tentatively, I'll say that in the absence of knowledge, keeping them separate makes more sense, as it is easier to remove and compile the older entry into a history section than expand it back into an entry if they turn out not to have a strong connection. —JabberWokky
    • The Fresno Bee had an article I pulled from Google cache which contains the note, "The family that owns the restaurant runs five other Huong Lan restaurants in the Bay Area, Sacramento and Stockton." I'm now leaning toward SM's as the default and then separating later if it turns out they are not related (since it seems very likely they are the same subject). -jw

From Comings and Goings:

International Bistro closed earlier this month. The Nepalese and Vietnamese restaurant was open for less than three months at 213 E St., Suite A, between DeVere’s and Zindagi.

A “coming soon” sign is up in that space for Huong Lan Sandwiches, a Vietnamese sandwich shop.

It has the same owners as the Huong Lan Sandwiches at 6930 65th St. in Sacramento, which offers more than 15 sandwiches, many for $3. Vietnamese sandwiches, or Bánh Mì, often feature steamed, barbecued or pulled pork or chicken. Fish, tofu, headcheese and paté are other options. The rolls are also stuffed with vegetables like carrots, cucumber and cilantro.

Its website http://huonglansandwichesdavis.com, posts future hours as 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. The space is vacant and signs point job seekers to the website.
