Sometimes you just want a banh mi without any bells, whistles, or Sriracha lime ginger aioli. Saigon Deli has been a Seattle classic for a long time, and continues to serve perfectly simple baguette sandwiches loaded with the usual fillings as well as the option of a fried egg. While you could sit at a table and have some bun cha or pho, if it’s nice out and you’re wise, grab a banh mi to-go and find a grassy knoll where you can have a personal picnic.
