This is a brilliant Vietnamese takeout scheme where the assembly line has toppings like pickled carrots, cucumbers, and jalapeño, as well as sunny side up eggs and a delicious cilantro sauce. You can order them in the form of a sandwich, salad, or bowl with fluffy broken rice. There are no wrong choices, but the beef brisket banh mi is our winner because of how the steak juice soaks into the baguette.
