This tiny Vietnamese sandwich shop in Sunset Park may appear somewhat disheveled and ramshackled, but its cheap, delicious sandwiches account for the intense crowding at lunch times. The clear favorite is the traditional banh mi stuffed with thick slices of pork belly, pickled vegetables, and chopped jalopeno peppers and encased in a crusty, baguette-type bread, which is given a final toasting before serving. Also popular is the bun rieu, a beef noodle soup flavored with tomato and crab paste. Vegetarian offerings are few but include curried catfish and sardine sandwiches, jackfruit chips, and tamari nd balls.
