A Tenderloin neighborhood hole in the wall with dirt-cheap prices, Saigon Sandwich is a popular San Francisco spot for made-to-order bahn mi — the traditional Vietnamese sub sandwich.

Employees from the nearby government offices line up at lunch time, but the queue moves quickly, in part because it’s cash only.
