Description

Village Voice's Description

Once ensconced in a stall under the Manhattan bridge, this distinguished Vietnamese institution was reinstalled in the rear of a jewelry store. One thing they do with the extra space is a lot of baking, including bright green mung bean cakes stuffed with coconut, chewy sweet beef jerky, and, best of all, the demi-baguettes on which the sandwiches are made. The bread is reheated, stuffed with cukes, pickled carrots and radishes, homemade Chinese sausage, cilantro, bologna-like pork pate, and, at your request, hot green chiles. There's no better lunch in town.

Tips from foursquare

    Get the Banh Mi. It's a Vietnamese sandwich. If you've never had it, go there and try it. Everybody that ends up trying this place usually makes it regular stop for food.

  • Village Voice on 02/15/11

    House made pork sausage forms the basis for Sandwich #1. Added to this is the bland, Bologna-like pork "pate," pickled root vegetables, spears of fresh cuke, and wads of cilantro- cheap and delicious!

  • Cheapism on 01/12/11

    Come here for NYC's best bargain on cheap, flavorful Vietnamese sandwiches. Get the Banh Mi Saigon (pork) sandwich - $3.57 for a foot-long.

  • Get the classic #1. Fragrant, sweetly caramelized, slow-cooked pork is stuffed into a hot, crusty baguette along with fiery chilies, cool cucumber, shredded daikon and a fistful of cilantro.
