    Banh Mi sandwiches are the new hotness around the city. Xe May has one of the largest menus of the tasty Vietnamese sandwich to be found. Go for the Sidecar, a fairly traditional version with beef

    Unlike some other lemongrass chicken banh mis I've had the one at Xe May was perfectly tender and juicy. The "Hog" was also packed with flavor. They got the art of toasting bread down to a T!

    Super sub classic aka banh mi dac biet. As blasphemous as it feels to verbally order a super sub here, I really enjoyed the sandwich. 7-8 bucks for a sandwich, cash only. Take it Togo.

    New favorite bahn mi in the city, just delicious. Cub Classic is utterly amazing, with superb BBQ pork, pate, perfectly toasted bread (+ jalepenos). Notice how many quality adjectives were used?
  • Michelle W.
    Let it sit for a second so the sauce softens the bread a bit. Vegetarian bahn mi is pretty big. Also crumbs everywhere.

    Order the lambretta. It is a perfect mix of spicy, the lamb is cooked perfectly and the bread is perfectly crusty.

    Had 'The "Hog"', very tastey. Small seating, friendly staff - next time trying the "Super Cub Classic". Totally paid twice once on seamless, then again on p/u. They called me right after to refund.

    Inventive bahn mi. The Lambretta, a coconut curry lamb bahn mi, is excellent. The vegetarian bahn mi on whole wheat bread is also a great choice!

    Meat lovers - please please please get the Cub Classic, and make it spicy. It's definitely not a traditional bahn mi but that's what makes it even better.

    Xe May puts has an eccentric take on bahn mi... so eccentric that they're mixing grilled beefsteak with pineapple chutney to create the tasty "Sidecar." Read more

    The Banh mi is exactly what you want. And the spicy lambretta - awesome. They deliver, too - fast and pretty cheap. This place is great.

    Always get The Hog, spicy, with extra meat (that last thing is not on the menu, but I can't get enough of that grilled pork!)
  • Marian E.
    Marian ElbertOctober 8, 2012
    I had the superclub classic banh mi which was good, but not amazing like some of the banh mi restaurants in Chinatown. Also I wish the bread had been taken out earlier.

    I've been coming here for years. If you're not washing your báhn mi down with a basil limeade fizz, you're doing it wrong!

    A perfectly crusty baguette pairs well with fresh and crisp fillings. You can customize your banh mi with one of three different spice levels.

    Agree with consensus- sandwiches are super tasty but light on the meat. Ask for extra if you're really hungry. Got the sidecar

    Don't fear the extra spicy. It's really just "Sriracha" (which you love) + jalapeños + a kicker of chili oil. No need to be a daredevil.

    The tacos may be appealing if you can't decide, but I'd pass on them. Their tortillas were pretty bad. Just stick with the Sidecar (grilled steak w/ pineapple chutney) sandwich.
