Most of the banh mi spots in town are known for their barbecued pork. Saigon Vietnam Deli is no exception - but you don’t need it. Their roasted pork is even better, and the pickled daikon is the tangiest in the neighborhood. They also have other options, like rice plates topped with various stews, but you want this roasted pork sandwich.
