It’s difficult to point to any one thing that makes the #1 our favorite bánh mì at this small storefront in the East Village. It could be the slightly pressed bread that holds all of the ingredients in place, and makes each delicious bite the same as the last. It could also be the rich, grainy pâté that’d steal the spotlight at any dinner party as an hors d’oeuvre. Or, it could be the fact that the chà bông (meat floss), adds a layer of porky chewiness to balance the crunch of all of the vegetables. More likely than not, it’s a combination of all three.
