Fresh Bowl in North Austin is perhaps one of the only spots in town that makes their own rice noodles for pho—which should definitely be part of your order—but our absolute favorite thing here is the bánh mì. The baguette comes out toasted and puffy, resulting in an audible crunch and a small shower of crumbs after each bite, and there are enough pickled veggies and cilantro to brighten up the savory fillings it all holds. While you can get a few different bánh mì here, we like the house special—made with a tiny mountain of cold cuts and roasted meats, plus a very generous spread of pâté and mayo.
