Dong Phuong Oriental Bakery (address and info)
New Orleans East
Although New Orleanians tend to refer to the banh mi as a “Vietnamese po-boy,” it is its own sandwich in its own right. It’s hard to beat the classic out at Dong Phuong bakery.
Wayfare (address and info)
Fancy ‘wiches are the hallmark at Wayfare and it’s difficult, if pressed, to choose a favorite. "The Knuckle” is always a crowd pleaser with its combo of rare roast beef and horseradish, but don’t miss the Porchetta: pork loin wrapped in Kurobuta pork belly, caramelized onions, salsa verde, arugula, and fennel aioli on a hoagie. Yes, a hoagie. Not a po-boy.
