Banh Mi around Newark Blvd/Hwy 84 area?

My very favorite banh mi in the Ardenwood-Newark Blvd-Jarvis Ave.-Hwy 84 area was from Thanh Thanh which closed a while back. I’m still in mourning. They had the most delicious and perfect egg and Chinese sausage bahn mi--trung chien lap xuong.

Can you recommend any alternative banh mi within a short drive? The egg bahn mi is not a requirement—it would be nice, but probably too much to ask.

    1. There's Huong Lan, in the Lion Food Plaza on Mowry. It's okay though, not the greatest.

      1. Try Jenjon Cafe on Decoto @ Alvarado-Niles. It's hidden in the corner of the Safeway shopping center. Very small place, rather slow, and a little pricey for banh mi (a little under $5) but pretty good.
