This small, brightly lit sandwich shop is a destination both for Vietnamese immigrants looking for an honest taste of home and adventurous gastronauts looking for a taste of foreign climes. Both appreciate the banh mi, the classical collision of French and Vietnamese culinary tradition that resulted in a wonderful spread of sandwiches - most of them some variety of pork - on short baguettes. No matter what you choose, you'll get out the door for under five bucks, with a lunch that beats any fast-food offering.

Ba Le is a hole-in-the-wall in a neighborhood full of a million other holes in a million other walls. But Ba Le is also a real hole in one: a spot frequented not just by members of Denver's Vietnamese community, but by hordes of Denver diners on the lookout for something new, something delicious and something definitely cheap. Ba Le is basically a sandwich shop, but it makes only the Vietnamese banh mi sandwich a beautiful mix of unusual meats (various pâtés and pork and chicken and pork) and mounds of vegetables (cilantro, shredded carrot, cucumber and more) all smushed together between two halves of a French/Vietnamese baguette. The bread itself is worth the trip, the smeared-on pâtés like a bonus French kick. And the clincher? Each sandwich comes in at less than three bucks.
Tips from foursquare
Voted Best Banh Mi in Westword's Best of Denver 2011!
At just a couple of bucks, it's a mystery to us that Ba Le actually turns a profit off its awesome banh mi sandwiches. You have to try one!
Go to Ba Le and get a delicious sandwich (I love the BBQ pork) with spicy veggies on crunchy french bread for less than three bucks. For dessert, the taro frozen yogurt is great.
