Mala & Satay has the best banh mi sandwiches in the neighborhood. It’s a very quick counter situation where you can also order things like spicy Szechuan peppercorn pho or vermicelli bowls topped with chicken satays and vegetables. The space is pretty laid-back even at peak lunch hours, so there’s plenty of room to spread out with your warm sandwich or soup.
