    The vietnamese sanwitch with bacon and avokado is fantastic. If you like chillie say order it with jalapenos.

    I actually like the banh mi here more than at Saigon Sandwich. Go with the chicken meatball avocado or the BBQ pork. Espresso not so great (think Lavazza capsule).

    Veggie banh mi with a twist: falafels and homemade pickled veggies. Add sriracha for extra kick! No more traipsing through the ghetto to Saigon Sandwich.

    Baguette was perfect!! Just the right crunch and size. BBQ pork was soft and not chewy/rubber. Just the right amount of everything.
