Long-time fans of bánh mì in Austin might remember Ng BMT, one of our favorite sandwich shops in the city. They bounced around a few locations, and eventually closed back in 2016 for a few years before reopening as NG Cafe in North Austin, near Parmer and I-35. The sandwiches are smaller and more compact, with a generous layer of pate and house-made mayo. But the bread really brings it all together—a toasted, house-made French baguette with a crispy exterior and a soft center. We’re big fans of the classic here, with Asian ham and pork head cheese, but the shredded pork skin version is a close second favorite.
