Walking into Saigon Sandwich can be a little overwhelming if you don’t speak Vietnamese. The picture menu above the counter doesn’t entirely explain what’s in the various sandwich options, and it’s unclear whether you should get a small (at $3.95 it seems like it might be very small) or a large. We’ll make it easy for you: get the Saigon Special, and you definitely only need a small. These are the best banh mi we’ve had in the LA area, with super crunchy bread, a good ratio of fillings, and just the right amount of pate and spice.
