East Side Bahn Mi is our go-to spot for Vietnamese sandwiches in East Nashville. One of the best things about the bánh mì here is the crispy homemade baguettes that rain crumbs all over the counter in the best way possible. But the fillings just might edge out the bread—there’s black-pepper-caramel-roasted pork shoulder, lemongrass chicken, and griddle-seared smoked bologna. They also dish up some mighty tasty rice and salad bowls, which might be a nice thing to eat on a “feels-like” 105-degree Nashville day. There isn’t a whole lot of seating inside, so you might have to opt for takeout with an impromptu picnic at Shelby Bottoms or in the backseat of your car.
