    prices have risen to $7-8. If you're not a fan of mayo on your banh mi, be sure to let them know because they slather it on like a 5 year old slathers his own pb&j sammich

    Best sandwich in San Francisco. Get The Special and add avocado. Dirt cheap. You can't go wrong.

    The special is pretty good but the meat texture is weirdly reminiscent of corned beef. Not great as leftovers but too big for one sitting.

    The Crispy Tofu is a great vegetarian sandwich. Get it with an avocado shake or a mango mint smoothie.

    The crispy tofu banh mi has tofu that is shredded for maximum crunch with every bite. You can also get it in a fresh spring roll; both are vegan, as are the avocado or mango-mint shakes.

    The special is a great choice for banh mi lovers. Crispy tofu was also a surprisingly tasty no-meat option.
