Cheap and terrific banh mi (the meatball version’s best) on the northern edge of Brooklyn Chinatown, with ace coffee.
"A perfectly crisp baguette, chewy roast pork, fresh cold cuts and pickled veggies...Ba Xuyen's #1 ($4) has them all and more."
Unoficially, they’re the “Kings” of Banh Mi – better than everything in Chinatown. You can’t go wrong with any choice – try the Banh Mi with meatballs.
I've been eating their banh mis ever since I was 10 (over a decade ago) and they have never failed me! Their bread and sandwich ingredients are always fresh and tasty. I love #1!
My favorite legit banh mi place around NYC. If you're going to eat it right away, get your sandwich toasted.
This Vietnamese sandwich shop is only open until 6:30 pm, but it is so good people hurry home from work to score their banh mi. Our favorite is the one made with canned sardines, mmm...
The 'special' hot coffee is chock full o nuts with a healthy dollop of sweetened condensed milk and half and half to taste. No sugar required.
#1 came with head cheese - not my thing. #4 (meatball) rocks
For a quick breakfast, grab a couple spring rolls and an iced coffee. The coffee is actually Cafe Du Monde from New Orleans, brewed Vietnamese-style and poured over ice with condensed milk.
number 9 grilled chicken! there are an extra 3 sandwiches on the menu that some don't know of. iced coffee in the morning - I'm a regular and today's tasted weird but they wouldn't remake it -.-
Red bean milk tea is outrageously good. Can't go wrong with the sandwiches.
Amazing bahn mi for five bucks! Get number one or meatball.
Best banh mi in Brooklyn, and maybe even NYC. Go for the regular or the grilled pork sandwich
Get the Number 8 is the most unique, best Banh Mi you'll have. It's a spicy and delicious meatball sandwich.
Favorite is #1 and I also recommend their iced coffee, its not any ordinary coffee !
No.1 and 8 are fantastic!!
Tourist tip: this banh mi place on the edge of Brooklyn's Chinatown is the truth. Hearty and filling, try one with a taro shake or cafe sua da - you're welcome.
Best banh mi in New York hands down. Start with the #1 and head back for the meatball banh mi.
Get the #1 Combo Banh Mi. Don't let the ingredient "head cheese" scare you. It's delicious. You're welcome.
Ba Xuyen is a strong contender for NYC's best banh mi. At a mere $5 for a sandwich, you can't go wrong with the traditional #1 or the #5 with BBQ Pork.
the best banh mi I've had. too bad the hair wedged deep in mine ensures I'll never have it again :(
My fav banh mi in NYC
Best banh mi I've had to date. If you're on a quest to find the perfect banh mi sandwich, hit this place up!
Great banh mi and Vietnamese coffee.
The sandwiches are amazing. Get some of the cookies to go. The steamed rolls are wonderful. They serve extra peanut sauce with them.
Go for an avocado shake on a warm sunny day
Yummy Vietnamese coffee
The meatball banh mi (which is basically a Vietnamese submarine sandwich) was yummy and really wholesome.
#1, #3, #8 are the best! Actually, it does not matter which # you choose - you cannot go wrong with any of the choices!
Meatball sandwich is awesome
BBQ 4 life
Prices going up 50 cents starting Oct. 1, 2013
Worth the trip from the city and westchester
Can't go wrong with #4 and Iced Ovaltine or Horlicks.
Try the Chicken Banh Mi
Best avocado shakes sold here.
Best Banh Mi ever!
lives up to hype. #1 and #7 the two best banh mi's I've ever had. papaya milkshake also great
The grilled pork # 8 is one of the tastiest sandwiches I have ever had.
Sandwich 8 and an avocado shake
Currently my favorite place to get Viet sandwiches now that the other one that I used to like went downhill. :(
Pâté Thit Nguôi
This is the best Viet sandwich stores in NYC, hands down!! We suggest the Pate Thit Nuong- Pate, ham, sweet pressed sausage, pork roll head cheese and white roast pork with red rind.
Cup of water is 50 cents with ice, 25 cents without. But refills are free
The sardine (#7) is unlike any ole fillet-o-fish your taste buds have ever experienced. I know the photograph on their menu is not the most flattering but DAYMN it's a delicious sandwich
Believe the hype on the Banh mi there, so damn good, and the avocado shake I had was yummy too.
I want to try the Pâté Thit Nguôi
Go to Ba Xuyen and try the Ice Horlicks
