Saigon Deli

My friends were craving banh mi so we decided to try out Saigon Deli. It’s located next door to Pho Rang Dong Restaurant (which seems to be run by the same people).

I assume these are their most popular banh mi options.

The menu is short and sweet; 10 types of banh mi along with a few Vietnamese desserts (sadly they were completely out of those).

Cash only!

There were three workers running the deli; I like how they make all the banh mi’s fresh. They actually ran out of bread but lucky for us, they got more delivered.

Clearly fresh baguettes and they toast them on request. You can also choose exactly what you want in your banh mi’s and if you’d like it spicy.

Good portion of meat and they stuff the inside with the usual cucumbers, pickled carrots, daikon and cilantro.

Come early to avoid disappointment. Cheap hole in the wall spot with quality banh mi.
