Where vietnamese sandwiches? Uptown?

I love vietnamese sandwiches (banh..ah, hoi?) but never see them. Anything above Chinatown? Or at least near the 6 train?
Someone should put out a NYC giude organized by subway stops.

  1. Good luck in your search. I posted something similar a few months and got nothing. :(

    1. Banh hoi is a noodle dish. You want the banh mi. And no, I've not seen any uptown or midtown at all.

      1. After 6pm, you can get a Bahn Mi at Momofuku Ssam Bar (13th and 2nd, you would take the 6 train to 14th and it's not far from there).

        As talented as Chang is, you really need to suck it up and trek to Saigon Bakery if you haven't been.

        1. The bahn mi place on Broom St. (b/t Mott and Elizabeth) is not that far from the Spring St stop on the 6 line.

          1. the furthest uptown banh mi option i know of is bao noodles. never had it so i can't comment. saigon banh mi is my single favorite food item in all of nyc, and its strange discordant location in the back of a jade jewerly shop alone is worth a visit.
