I have been dying to try this steamed bun sandwich shop since its opening in August. Unfortunately it's located in a spot I never find myself in, so when a performance I was attending was in close proximity I jumped at the chance to finally try the goods.
For price and taste this was well worth the excitement: $7.50 gets you two sandwiches with fillings like Short Rib & Kimchi, Braised Pork Shoulder, and Shiitake & Portobello Mushrooms. The innards sit between two tasty, lightly steamed bread buns with sesame seeds.
This place has introduced us Bahn Mi lovers to a new alternative, traditionally called a mantou. The only warning is that the additional fillings are traditional (like all the pickled things that precede dinner at a nice Koran restaurant) and may require an accustomed palate. Otherwise I can see this becoming insanely popular as long as word of mouth can overpower its odd location.
