Many Vietnamese places serve great hoagies. I think the French influence on their culture has something to do with it. The sandwiches are usually served in a crusty french roll. The fillings on my favorite include house made mayo, a fresh cucumber spear, roast pork, pickled carrots, jalapeno and cilantro. They are usually less than $4 per sandwich. Red bean ice cream makes a nice dessert to finish off the meal.

      I love their baguette sandwiches. First ones I had were in Paris. Then, I was delighted to see a local place opened up back home. Bread wasn't quite as good but they were still mighty tasty.

        They're called Banh Mi and they are one of the great sandwiches of the world. Any city or town with even a small Vietnamese community will have a couple of sandwich shops. Always great, cheap roadfood.

        In NY, my favorite is Nicky's on East 2nd and Ave. A. Their classic Banh Mi has pate, ham, ground pork, pickled carrot, cucumbers, cilantro, jalapeno, and mayo on a baguette. It's AWESOME...and it's only 4 bucks.

          I've been buying them at a little place in Holly Springs, NC called Sweet Basil.

            There are numerous previous threads about Banh Mi here--use the search feature.

            PS--In SF, at my favorite spot (called Wrap Delight on Larkin St.) they are $2.00 (when I go late in the afternoon--the price actually seems to vary because I've paid $2.50 at the height of the lunch hour).
