Where we've featured it
Another Sunset Park star, the house special over here gives Ba Xuyen a run for its $4.50. You’re looking at butter-and-mayo’d bread, topped with cold cuts, BBQ pork, pickled veg, jalapeño, and cilantro. Sounds familiar, but somehow manages to taste original. Like some other hitters on this list, the pork here comes sliced nice and thick, so you can actually savor the meat.
A Vietnamese friend put us on to Thanh Da in Dyker Heights a few weeks ago, and the pho here is very solid, though maybe not worth making a trip for if you live far away. The bun bo hue? That’s another story entirely. Get on the train.
