    Simply the best Vietnamese sandwich in NYC

    Some things/a lot of things are just better getting outside of Manhattan. Fresh ingredients & warm bread... by far, NYC's best banh mi ($5) & the "Special" coffee is sweet, heartwarming goodness.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
