Bánh Mì Saigon Bakery

VIETNAM

Many people will tell you to go here when you talk about banh mi and Manhattan in the same breath. "Ooooh how fun! You walk through a jewelry store!" they will say. And while it is actually sort of fun doing this, the place is packed to the brim and in most cases you will wait through 20 orders before your sandwich is ready if it is prime lunch time.

The sandwich is good, but the contents seem a little like the place: rushed. The pork is just not as flavorful as other locations in the neighborhood and beyond. The bread is a bit blah. It's a great sandwich still, I guess I just have high expectations.
