Where we've featured it
Lily’s Sandwich in Austin’s Chinatown has been around for a long time, and while they do many noodle and soup dishes, it’s not called Lily’s Soups for a reason. We like to get the Banh Mi Dac Biet here - aka the Lily Gourmet sandwich - which has a bunch of different cold cuts, including head cheese, roast pork, ham, and pate. The baguette is crisp on the outside and tender in the middle, but still slightly dense. At around $5, it’s one of the more filling banh mi we’ve had. If you order one to go, they’ll offer to pack the vegetables separately so the sandwich doesn’t get soggy.
