Looking For Great Bahn Mi in Oakland/Berkeley Area.

I've been to great bahn mi (Vietnamese Sandwiches) places in San Fran, but I'm looking for agreat place closer to home.

      Cam Huong on Webster is good. BC Deli on Franklin also.

      A little further north in El Cerrito there's Ba Le.

        There is also a Ba Le just a few doors away from BC Deli. The grilled pork there is better than BC Deli, but the chicken is not as good.

    2. My gold standard for bahn mi is Ba Le 2 in El Cerrito on San Pablo at Central:

      Best less-than-$3 I've ever spent!

        It is very good. Incredible roll-crust crispness. How is the pho?
