They sell some baked goods.
I ordered a Banh Mi Xiu Mai (Vietnamese Meatball Sandwich) for $3.25 and a banh mi dac biet (Vietnamese special sandwich) for $2.95. The sandwiches looked good with plenty of cucumbers, cilantro, jalapenos, and Do Chua (Vietnamese Pickled Stuff ie. Carrots and Daikon).
I split each sandwich into thirds so my cousins and I could all try a bit of each for comparison. The xiu mai was our least favorite. The meatball was pretty bland with a watery tomato sauce, nothing like my braised Xiu Mai (Vietnamese Meatballs).
The dac biet with its combination of Xa Xiu (Chinese Barbecued Pork) and Pate (Faux Gras with Chicken Livers) was better.
I like the thicker cut of the veggies, but much prefer Vietnamese French bread to baguette bread. Also, the two sandwiches cost $6, for $1 less, I could have gotten another sandwich at Banh Mi & Che Cali. The frugal diner in me and my cousins all noticed that.
I also ordered a $1.75 chocolate croissant. Flaky. Filled with chocolate. Perfect.
