There’s no lack of brilliant Vietnamese options around Deptford and Greenwich, but it’s Viet Anh Pho’s bánh mìs that are the ones worth seeking out. The Special, which combines lemongrass-heavy pork wrapped in betel leaves, grilled pork slices, pâté and batons of pickled vegetables is up there with the best fillings around and what it lacks in size - this is a relatively small forearm of a sandwich compared to say, an oil tanker truck-sized thing - it makes up for in porky flavour. The space itself is perfect for solo diner or a casual catch-up and the menu has pho, summer rolls, bun noodle salads, and much much more.
