Banh Mi, Grilled BBQ Pork. This was a near perfect specimen. The French bread was shiny and golden brown. The crust had the right crunch on the outside and the pillowy softness inside. The grilled BBQ pork was a gorgeous red hue and thinly sliced with hardly any fat on it. It was flavorful and tender. It had the perfect balance of do chua (pickled carrot and daikon), cilantro, jalapeno and Viet mayo. They may not be the amazing $2.50 banh mi anymore but at $3.50 nowadays, it is still one of the best sandos around.
This little Viet dump has been a mainstay in Asian Square for a many many moons... No matter how many dudebros and salmon colored shorts make their way through here, the affordable prices and the kick ass authentic grubbery makes this truly one of the OG's of pho and banh mi's. If they start watering down the menu, like so many other Viet joints on Buford Hwy, there will be hell to pay... They might as well pack up and retire to Florida.
