Tofu bahn mi at Out the Door
I understand how much more expensive the bahn mi at Out the Door are ($8.25) than the bahn mi at any other place in town, but the tofu bahn mi available as a special this past Friday was terrific. The usual veggies (although you have to ask for jalapenos) and a substantial amount of marinated tofu in an (I think) Acme baguette. It was a special, so I don't know whether it is still being served, but if it is, and if you are willing to pay the price, I'd recommend it.

I've also enjoyed the meatball bahn mi, which, alas, might also be a special (although if OTD always has either that or the tofu bahn mi among its specials, that works out pretty well). I like the (I think, two) other bahn mi on the menu, but the meatball and the tofu are the ones I'm more likely to shell out the extra bucks for. The chicken bun is also pretty damn good -- $3.00, so again not cheap, but fairly substantial and very tasty. Beverage-wise, I usually ask for an Arnold Palmer with their chrysanthemum tea. They usually put both a slice of lime and a slice of lemon in it. As probably to be expected, quite a few inches shorter than a Big Gulp, but quite refreshing.
