Cash only! But if you are in the 'hood and want a very good banh mi, give it a try. They also have a selection of interesting bagged snacks, mochi, and a cooler of standard and old-timey sodas like Cactus Cooler and Canada Dry ginger ale. While we were deciding on mochi vs this tapioca-based snack, a guy came with... More

Went to this sandwich shop with Vienamese/American co worker while in travel. He said that he read that this place should be on a bucket list. We were not disappointed. There was a line but the wait was not long. The menu is very short and ordering is easy...chicken, pork, tofu...stuffed in a crusty bread with seasoned veggies and celantro.... More

Fantastic value, cash only. Great grab to go and eat on the run. Recommend roast pork or combination--pork, chicken, and pâté.

The fried tofu banh mi is the best. Whatever secret sauce they put on is addictive. I'm from out of town and I'm not kidding when I say I will order half a dozen with veggies separate and haul on plane ride back. Check and fresh and a must stop every time in town. Only downside is in shady location.... More

This place is no frills and cheap. The sandwich options are limited but they great. I tried the combination, chicken and pork. Thanks to the locals for pointing out that the lady making the sandwiches was trying to take our order. They are super quick and will have your order ready in under 5 minutes.

We loved the bahn-mi here. Super fresh. Worth heading to this tiny little shop. The line may look long, but it moves fast. Be ready with your order as soon as you get to the front of the line. They are not the most patient.

If you're in the Tenderloin, this hole-in-the-wall is a good place for a tasty bahn mi sandwich of pork, beef, chicken and a couple other choices. You'll need to take out though, as there is seating for exactly 2 people in the cramped space.
