Best Banh Mi (2008)
Saigon Banh Mi So 1
The Vietnamese sandwich is the best example of Euro-Asian cooperation I can think of, beginning with the very Gallic baguette that bedrocks this delicious treat. Next heap on the Chinese anise-roast pork, pickled vegetables, pale pâté, squirt of chile paste, and a sprig of cilantro, and, voilà! Saigon Banh Mi So 1 is a humble carryout shop that makes great Vietnamese sandwiches, in addition to sticky-rice concoctions and fresh sugarcane juice.
