Banh Mi Inflation Eases, Slightly


When the new Hanco’s opened in Park Slope (350 7th Avenue), it was a bittersweet affair. Yes, there was banh mi to be had, but it wasn’t cheap. Sandwiches were $7 a pop, especially galling when they’re just $5.25 each at their Boerum location and far cheaper (just $3.50) at the likes of Ba Xuyen. Now, Serious Eats reports that the Hanco’s Park Slope has dropped their prices slightly, to $6.50, after customer complaints. While it’s nice that they listened, $6.50 is still pretty high for banh mi.
