Ba Xuyen is our go-to spot in Sunset Park for a banh mi. They make 11 different kinds, most of which you’ll see in pictures behind the counter, but our favorite is the classic #1 with crispy bread, plenty of crispy vegetables, and pork in various forms (ham, paté, pork roll, etc.). Our second favorite is the #7 (the sardine variety), which pairs well with a durian shake. This is mostly a takeout spot, but there are a couple of tables in the cafe-like space.
