Vietnamese bánh mì from Saigon Sandwiches in the Tenderloin
Bánh mì is a type of Vietnamese sandwich that can be found in virtually every traditional Vietnamese restaurant and cafe. It’s easy to make, fast to serve, delicious, and cheap. It is typically served on a toasted French baguette with pickled carrots and daikon, onions, jalapeños, cilantro, cucumbers, and meat or tofu.
Though you can get them all over the city, Saigon Sandwiches in the Tenderloin focuses solely on serving them and has their process dialed. There is frequently a long line out the door during the lunch rush, but the service is incredibly fast and efficient. It’s run by just two nice ladies, and they can probably churn out hundreds of sandwiches blindfolded without skipping a beat.
