Where we've featured it
Long-time fans of banh mi 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. We visited recently and can happily say that it lives up to our fondest memories, transporting us to what we currently refer to as “the Before Times.” 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 baguette with a crispy exterior and soft center. We like to get the classic here, with Asian ham and pork head cheese, or the shredded pork skin version.
