New Banh Mi Cart on Wall Street
- D...DF Feb 19, 2009 11:50 AM
I went today around 1:45pm, and they were out of one of the three pork varieties for the #1, so I tried the #2, grilled chicken and onions, spicy. It was delicious! I need to go back and try the #1 and the meatball baguette to properly review it, but I definitely recommend checking it out if you're in the Financial District and like Bahn Mi.
I had the #1 last week, and while it wasn't the best bahn mi i've ever tasted, it was good considering other lunch options in FiDi. Just two caveats though:
1. They make the bahn mi's to order (which is a good thing), but it means that it'll take about 4-5 minutes to get your sandwich. When I went there were only two people in line, so all in all, I waited around for about 8 to 9 minutes to get my food.
2. The summer rolls that I had were terrible, and at $4, definitely not worth it. They were pre-made, so the rice paper wrapping got a little gummy, and the ingredients inside were totally dried out.
I think i'll definitely be back for more bahn mi's in the future.
