As you can probably tell from the name, Mr. Baguette is in fact a bakery. But the real season you should come to this Vietnamese mini-chain with four locations across Southern California is for their long, crispy bánh mì. These sandwiches are about the size of a subway foot long, and have the perfect ratio of bread to meat inside. Our favorite is the #5, which is filled with some of the juiciest grilled pork we’ve ever encountered. Order it with extra meat if you want to make sure there’s more sandwich left to revisit around dinnertime.
