Banh Mi Sandwich

Review excerpt: Banh Mi Sandwich is a tiny cubbyhole of a shop with a loyal following and lines that snake out of the door at lunchtimes. You’ll need to arrive at least 20 minutes before it opens to be sure of getting either of the best-selling sandwiches: the spicy roast pork or the Vietnam ham and liver paste. While you wait, you’ll also be subjected to a curious kind of Pavlovian experiment involving a single stereo speaker and an endlessly looped song whose only discernible lyrics are, “I want you, I need you, banh mi.”

In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
