    The best Tofu Banh Mi in the downtown area, maybe inner loop. The other dishes are great so you almost can't go wrong . Pro Tip: ask for extra veggies.

    This is still the best deal for a banh mi west of the Mississippi. $2.50 for a grilled pork sandwich with all the fixings. Be prepared to wait, as their foot traffic is busy most days/nights.

    Bahn mi (sandwiches), pho (noodle soup), spring rolls, eggs rolls and other snacks form the basis of this inexpensive, order-at-the-counter Vietnamese restaurant. Read more

    If you want sandwiches to go, make sure you tell them to NOT toast the french bread and to put the veggies on the side so you don't have soggy sandwiches when you want to eat them later @ home.

    I like to get the char chicken bánh mì with added tofu! It's filling but I can't pass up the tofu spring rolls and Vietnamese coffee. Yum!

    #2 sandwich is my absolute favorite!!! If you are a coffee lover who crave that caffeine their Vietnamese iced coffee is to die for!

    Pork sandwich is the best I have tried in Houston. Pho is very good too, I would suggest to try soups in a different day :)

    Try the Chargrill BBQ Pork or Shredded Chicken sandwich. Comes with shredded carrots, cucumber sliced lengthwise, fresh cilantro and a crispy chili pepper wedge. Best $2.75 lunch around.

    Warning, pho portions are small. I finish all the noodles in 6 bites. Other than that, the banh mi is divine.

    Ayo, chargrill chicken sandwich, or tofu sandwich. The spring rolls are sort of fall-through when you hold 'em. The spot is cheap and very chill.
