About Bánh Mì D.C. Sandwich
We’ve tried fancy bánh mì on brioche and ciabatta—they’re not as good as the classic Vietnamese sandwiches on house-made rolls at this unassuming deli. The baguette is both airy and crackling, perfect for stuffing with pickled vegetables, fresh cucumber, cilantro, jalapeños, and swaths of mayonnaise and pâté. Pick from 20-plus fillings; we’re suckers for anything porky, such as barbecue bacon or fried bologna. Best part: Sandwiches are all less than $5. Also good: Sugarcane-shrimp bánh mì; sesame doughnut; avocado shake.
