Toasted sandwich chain with industrial-chic vibes
Vying for sandwich chain dominance, Bunk Sandwich has shops across town serving hot, grilled sandwiches and crispy, housemade chips on metal trays. The industrial shops offer a wide variety of meaty and vegetarian dishes, but the mainstay is the Cubano made with pork belly and shoulder roast. Bunk also offers a very straightforward but satisfying breakfast sammie in the form of an egg and cheese, or bacon, egg, and cheese, served on a fluffy toasted bun.
Cozy bakery and bánh mì cafe
A cramped space means that this Vietnamese bakery is mostly meant for take-away service, save for a few outside tables and a tiny interior one. That’s just fine, though, as the numerous bánh mì served at An Xuyên are made quickly on the cheap and served as a perfect lunch break. Generally, pork is the way to go here, either as BBQ, pate, shredded, Vietnamese ham, or combination, but all the sandwiches are served piled with cilantro, shredded carrots, cucumber, and jalapeno on a tender, flaky Vietnamese baguette. Rarely will they break $5, which leaves plenty of cash leftover for the numerous sweet and savory baked treats, from moon cakes to Chinese style bao.
