Bahn Mi in San Fernando Valley
Hello, PD Girl.
Here is a previous Chow post that might be of interest:
I highly recommend Sandwich Express.
No, it is not the best banh mi in Southern California, but it is quite good if you don't want to travel to the San Gabriel Valley or Westminster. Also, the owner is extremely nice. Usually they have interesting "serve yourself" soft yogurt flavors, so save some room!

Just west of Reseda Blvd.
another vote for Sandwich Express.
and i gotta know where they get their jalapenos from, because they are hotter than any others i have ever had. my last 3 sandwiches from there were fireballs!! (in a good way, because i hate weak jalapenos)
i usually get the grilled pork. i tried the Saigon, but didn't care for it. i just can't deal with cold pork, i think. next i want to try their fried egg one. i think that would be delightful.
but it's also a good location, parking is easy, the building isn't cramped and overly crowded and they have clean tables.
