Combining the best culinary traditions of Vietnam and France, we are obsessed with the uniquely delicious banh mi sandwiches at Saigon Vietnamese Sandwich Deli!
Located at the nexus of Chinatown, Little Italy and Soho in downtown Manhattan, Saigon has been selling "Vietnam's favorite export" since 1988.
The classic banh mi, #1 on the menu, starts with an oven-warm French baguette. Saigon's secret home-made pâté is spread on the bread and custom-filled with grilled pork, crisp strips of cucumber, cilantro and shredded pickled turnip radish and carrots. We order the #1 "spicy." Then we order a 2nd one to take home.
