Banh Mi in Koreatown

Like others, I got a bit over-excited when I saw Paris Baguette a few weeks back. Loved the pastries nonetheless.

Is there any place to get banh mi in koreatown?

    The only place I know of is Pho Viet on 2nd and Vermont. Apparently they are the *only* pho restaurant in the K-town area actually run by Vietnamese people.

    Never tried the sammiches there though.

      Isn't Pho 4000 run by Vietnamese? And isn't Pho 4000 twice as good as Pho 2000, and about 50.6 times as good as Pho 79?

        I can't speak to the quality, but Pho 4000 is run by Koreans now -- not sure if it was ever run by Vietnamese.

          Getting a bit off topic here, but I ate at Pho 4000 last week and had a long talk with the owner (it's her son that's on that big photo near the register in the back). She is Vietnamese.
