Banh Mi Ba Le
You’ve made it to this small sandwich shop on International (not to be confused with Bánh Mì Ba Le in El Cerrito) when you see the line stretching down the block. Hop in it, because this place makes some of the best bánh mì in Oakland. They have 24 different sandwiches, ranging from grilled pork to sardine to roasted eel, all stuffed into an airy-crackly French roll. The perfect sandwich deserves a fantastic drink to enjoy with it, so don’t leave without one of their iced Vietnamese coffees.
