SF Weekly's Description

This bright-green storefront in the Inner Richmond, which has seating for 10 on days when the cafe tables can be set up, serves a simple menu of soups, papaya salads, and some of the city's best banh mi. The Vietnamese sandwiches get high marks in all the basic competencies: A warm, light-crumbed French roll so crisp that crumbs fly off its surface each time we take a bite. A faint coating of sweetened mayonnaise, and crunchy shreds of pickled carrots, onions, and daikon. While the grilled chicken and meat combo sandwiches are good at Little Vietnam Cafe, the grilled pork banh mi is sublime: Its sweet, fish-sauce marinade thrums with flavor, and the meat is grilled just until a little charred-sugar smokiness clings to its surface.
