Village Voice's Description

Num Pang means "sandwich" in Khmer; the restaurant is single-minded in its eponymous devotion to Cambodian sandwiches, offering six different versions and nothing else to speak of, although the blood orange lemonade is very tart and refreshing. The sandwiches are petite, about half the size of your average Vietnamese banh mi, and are made with wonderful semolina rolls from Parisi Bakery. The rolls at Num Pang Sandwich Shop in the East Village are toasted slightly, slathered with chile mayo, pickled carrots, a slice of cucumber and a few sprigs of cilantro. Choose your filling: pulled pork, peppercorn catfish, coconut shrimp, hoisin veal meatballs, cauliflower-eggplant, or grilled skirt steak. We're partial to the catfish, which has a peppery outer crust, napped with sweet soy sauce.

Tips from foursquare

  • Try the pulled-pork. It's spicy and savory with succulent pork, cucumber, pickled carrots, cilantro and chili mayonnaise all on a lightly toasted roll. Sandwiches range from $6.75 to $8.75.

    Try the smoky pulled duroc pork sandwich. Smoky spiced-honey-glazed pork is crowned with julienned pickled carrots, fresh cilantro & sliced cucumber. It’s one of our #100best dishes & drinks of 2011.

    tasty banh mi sandwiches made with seasonal greenmarket veg (try the cauliflower one) and an upstairs "dining room" overlooking a rental car garage make this a sneaky fave for perfection
