    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

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 Sidecar (grilled beefsteak w/ pineapple chutney banh mi) is one of the best sandwiches in the city.

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

    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.

    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!)

    The bread here is amazing- toasty, crunchy on the outside, and soft on the outside. My favorite is the Super Cub Classic. Yum!

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

    Awesome bahn mi, preferred the sidecar over the original. Iced Vietnamese coffee is tasty, leaning towards sweet.
  • Ashley R.
    Ashley RoseMarch 21, 2015
    Agree with consensus- sandwiches are super tasty but light on the meat. Ask for extra if you're really hungry. Got the sidecar
  • JD

    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.

    Get the green papaya salad with any sandwich. The sauce is dark, rich, and spicy. Plus it comes with 'shrooms!

    This isn't a Cali banh mi, but the cold cuts and pâté are flavorful albeit scarce.. While the price is higher than most, you can taste the quality of ingredients.

    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.
