You can only reheat your leftover green beans and ravioli so many times before needing to go to Num Pang and pick up a sandwich. Like a lot of other fast-casual spots, there are a few different proteins that come in your choice of salad, grain bowl, or sandwich. But the Cambodian sandwiches here are better than what you’ll find at most dining establishments with their own iOs apps. They come on huge soft baguettes with pickled carrots, cilantro, chili mayo and your choice of meat (the catfish and skirt steak are both really good). While there isn’t any seating in Num Pang, but there’s an outdoor plaza about 100 feet away with benches and metal tables with chairs fastened into the ground.
