bahn mi in Springfield!!!
On Dickenson, just N/W of the intersection w/Belmont, there are a few Vietnamese spots. There's a sandwich & coffee spot next to the better known Pho place on the W side of the street. The sandwich I ordered had the usual ham, pate, carrots, cukes, cilantro, fish sauce, mayo, & was perfectly balanced flavorwise, although the bread was less than transcendent, & they didn't add chili sauce (I'll ask next time); the iced coffee was sublime & went perfectly w/the sandwich. It's not Brooklyn Viet, but what a blessing! Anyone been to the Pho place?
