This small, brightly lit sandwich shop is a destination both for Vietnamese immigrants looking for an honest taste of home and adventurous gastronauts looking for a taste of foreign climes. Both appreciate the banh mi, the classical collision of French and Vietnamese culinary tradition that resulted in a wonderful spread of sandwiches - most of them some variety of pork - on short baguettes. No matter what you choose, you'll get out the door for under five bucks, with a lunch that beats any fast-food offering.
