There have been a recent explosion of Vietnamese Bánh mì sandwiches around the city. They even opened a sandwich shop by my school in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan.
Keep in mind this place is CLOSED on Mondays, I had countless attempts to have banh mi sandwiches on Mondays only to forget that they’re closed. Located in the rear of the store they share a space with a Chinese jewelery shop. These pork sandwiches are so delicious and crisp, and best part is they’re only $3.75 take that five dollar foot-longs.
The best part of these sandwiches is the fresh cilantro and pork bits. Each place makes them differently (more reviews to come) but Bahn Mi Saigon have very fine bits of pork. The pickled carrots and cilantro is made just right and the fresh slivers of cucumbers give it a nice crunch. All this is neatly wrapped and cut in half then nicely brown bagged for you. This is the best banh mi I’ve had in New York. How can you not try one?
