(This venue is closed.) Only by examining the menu or the finished products, and not by eyeballing the storefront from any distance, would you discover that the sandwiches in question are banh mi.
The owners live in Bay Ridge; one had worked in Morningside Heights previously and noticed the dearth of Vietnamese chow. An Italian bakery in Jersey City supplies the bread, which nicely balances a brittle crust and a chewy crumb. Here it frames the QQ sandwich (above, $6.75), a combo of the shop's classic and meatball banh mi, and a sardine banh mi (below, $6.25), centered around fatty pieces of fish. Each picture, do note, shows only the more photogenic halves of the full sandwiches.
Also shown, from a menu that continues to expand at a modest pace: spring rolls and grilled pork over rice noodles ($8.50). The deep-fried spring rolls, sliced for this dish into bite-sized segments, were especially good.
