Best Non-Pork Banh Mi SAndwiches

I was a regular "#1 spicy" girl at Saigon Banh Mi, but I've recently given up pork, and am looking for other types of Vietnamese sandwiches. Does anyone have any good tofu, meatball, or ones made with non-dodgy chicken to recommend? I must say, I'm curious about the ones at Banh Mi Zon because they rated so highly on a SEcom roundup, although I've never heard them mentioned elsewhere.

  1. The Buddhist Delight at Banh Mi Saigon is pretty excellent, and huge.

    1. It's been a long long since i've had either, but the veggie lemongrass "chicken" at banh mi so 1, and the portabello banh mi at nicky's are (were) both quite good

      1. I love the chicken bahn mi at Bahn Mi Saigon-I order it every time. It's only $4.25, and it's huge! I always split one with a friend and then go down the street for bubble tea :)

        1. I've had a few of the sandwiches at Banh Mi Zon. All delicious, the Grilled Chicken is by far the best though. Highly recommended.

          1. Am I to assume that you think the chicken at Saigon is dodgy? I would disagree and they have an off the printed menu item that I really like, the curry chicken Banh Mi. No number, just ask for it. Dark meat chicken, light glaze of mildly hot yellow curry.
