Lee’s Bakery sits in a Buford Highway shopping center alongside a Chevron and a coin laundry biz. And inside this ordinary setting is some of the best Vietnamese food in the city. Whether you chow down in their relaxed, window-lined dining area or in the comfort of your car, you should be eating one of their legendary bánh mì sandwiches. Choose from eight options, including a few breakfast offerings with a generous serving of fried or scrambled eggs. The grilled pork is the most popular order, which makes immediate sense after your first bite. Chewing tender hunks of BBQ pork with crunchy cucumber and crispy bread feels like an out-of-body experience, except when you step out to high five your physical self. Make sure to work in some of their other excellent Vietnamese dishes like the comforting pho, tasty bún, and a variety of rice plates, too.
