Banh Mi DC

Vietnamese subs near the Eden Center.

April 2006 Dirt Cheap Eats

Banh Mi DC's version of the Vietnamese submarine are long and slim and well priced ($2.25 to $2.75). Two banh mi stand out here: One is stuffed with sardines, the other with slices of ham, pork bologna, and a spread of pâté. The deli has no seating, but the sandwiches travel well, so buy five (the sixth is free) and feed your friends.
