Where can I find Banh Mi in Pittsburgh?

Davecli May 23, 2009 08:49 AM

I know about Lucy in the Strip District, but are there any other places where I can get a Banh Mi sandwich??? I fell in love with this at a small take out place in San Francisco but haven't had much luck here.

Buy the way, Lucy's are great, but I want to try someone different!

    Let me know if you find any...I love Lucy's but would like to find another option, as well.

        From what I've seen on the board, Lucy is not longer there, but her replacement is even better.

            Seems Lucy is set up in front of Firehouse lounge now, and the new people are where Lucy used to be. Banh Mi war in Pittsburgh!?!

              That's the best news (about food) I've heard this week. The guy who replaced her down the block just isn't as good.

                Great day in the morning it's true and I've got a sandwich on my desk to prove it. If a war erupts between these two sandwich vendors it'll be over quick and it won't go well for one of them.

                  I much preferred the new people over Lucy. Lucy's tastes a bit more like a chicken hoagie, the new vendors taste more authentic to me.

            Man, I've never heard of Banh Mi before but now I REALLY need to try it.
