College buddies Ratha Chaupoly and Ben Daitz opened Num Pang restaurant back in 2009 in Union Square, and the Cambodian sandwich shop has since grown into four locations across the city. Inspired by Chaupoly's Cambodian heritage, the duo created fish-sauce–heavy, locally sourced sandwiches on fresh-baked breads, and irresistible, in-season sides, such as Greenmarket gazpacho and raw kale and daikon salad. As for the sandwiches, the pulled Duroc pork and summer peach with hand-cut bacon are no-brainer winners, though the vegetarian roasted cauliflower also hits it out of the park.
