    Think this place on mid Manhattan is really popular. I went there on lunch hour and ordered Grilled Skirt steak sandwich. It tastes so good! The staff were very friendly and service was really quick.

    PORK BELLY: amazing spin on vietnamese banh mi. bread toasted to perfection with papadam-like toast on the outside. would taste even better if the stems of cilantro were taken out.

    Offering choices ranging from roasted cauliflower to coconut curry shrimp to pulled duroc pork. In light of sandwich month definitely check out the asian creations at Num Pang. Read more

    Likely the best sandwich shop in NYC. Try the Five-Spice Glazed Pork Belly, Pulled Duroc Pork, or Grilled Khmer Sausage, in that order. Use Grubhub & place an advance order to avoid the lunch lines.

    Tiger prawn sandwich, don't forget to grab the spicy sauce (doesn't taste too hot but adds amazing flavor). Whenever in a hurry this is the right place. Small seating area but very fulfilling portion.

    This Sumatra cold brew Cambodian iced coffee is sweetened with coconut milk, condensed milk and tamarind juice. (Tip: Dunk a Num Pang salted-ginger-and-peanut-butter cookie in it.) Read more

    For my first visit, I followed the tips and went with the Five-Spice Glazed Pork Belly. AMAZING! This place takes down the Midtown douchiness a notch (only a notch bc Public House is still next door).

    Don't be put off by the long queue: these guys process customers FAST, and the classic catfish sandwiches are incredible. Going back for the pulled pork, and think I may plan a vacation in Cambodia!

    If the grilled peach and bacon sandwich is on the menu, don't think twice. Thick slabs of grilled peach, bacon, jalapeños, shredded carrots, scallions, and a little spicy mayo, on a baguette. Mmmm.

    This sandwich place is ridiculously delicious! I've been going here for the last week for lunch. The steak sandwich is to die for: it's savory and extremely chewy. It's about $9.50/sandwich.

    First time here. Had the 5 spice glazed pork belly sandwich with pickled veggies and a blood orange lemonade. All was very tasty! Definitely am adding this place into my lunch rotation.

    A god send. I was nervous the first time, crazy combinations. But trust me, whatever it is that they're doing, they KNOW what they're doing, and they're incredible. Pork belly all the way!

    The grilled steak salad is quite good. Nice amount of steak, fresh vegetables and nice seasonings and dressing. A healthy alternative to the sandwich that satisfies completely.

    I know the pulled pork is the real crowd pleaser, but the roasted cauliflower was the best sandwich I've had in years. It's full of so many delicious veggies and sauces.

    Glazed pork belly is the bomb ! Classic catfish, hoisin meatball and chicken chimi are all great, not fancying the steak, flavored and texture are good but smthn amiss. Salt ?

    Go with the specials; they don't last long, and you'll have plenty of time to try the static menu. I had a grilled peach and bacon sandwich last time I went, and it was beyond excellent.

    It pays to experiment! Tried a "Seasonal" sandwich that normally wouldn't have appealed to me: "Peach & Bacon". Trust me, despite how it sounds, this was surprisingly tasty combination.

    There's often a long line, but it moves surprisingly fast. Everything on the menu is worth a try, and be sure to slather it with sriracha for maximum tastiness.

    HOT GINGER APPLE TEA: ginger candy in liquid form. spicy enough to make you question whether the drink is warming you up or cooling you down.

    Sandwiches are soo good. They're that odd size where they leave you wanting just a bit more. No real seating at this location which is a bummer bc they can be a bit messy and don't travel well.

    Sammies used to be perfectly prepped but standards must be slipping...my Roasted Cauliflower was almost raw & eggplant spread was non-existent compared to rest of ingredients. Just not that good now.
