Lokal in Palms is the kind of sleepy sandwich shop that encourages you to stick around, order a coffee, and perhaps eat slowly enough to not spill on yourself. While there are a few different sandwiches and breakfast items on the menu, the place makes clear the house speciality is bánh mì. The Old Skool keeps things bright and fresh while still having all the heartiness we’re looking for at 1pm: a bite of squeakiness from the pork loaf, some butteriness from thin slices of ham and head cheese, and some needed moisture from mayo and paté. It’s a balanced sandwich that leaves you satisfied, but light enough to crave another half after you finish.
