Have you ever experienced that tear on the roof of your mouth while eating a bhán mi? It hurts like hell and anything consumed afterwards is a complete nightmare. Worry not, we’ve found a savior to the post-bhán-mi-raw-mouth-syndrome. Saigon Vietnamese Deli on Broome and Mott Street may not be the most fancy establishment in New York city, but it does serve a delicious sandwich with a soft baguette. We highly recommend the house special which comes with pork, cilantro, pickled cucumbers, carrots, and radishes.
This sandwich is a dichotomy. On initial contact, there is a slight crunch and then your teeth descend into a cloud of soft bread. The pork gives saltiness, the pickled vegetables a sweet flavor, and finally, the cilantro a strong and fresh burst of taste. Enjoy!
