Venue Info

Tucked into a bare-bones strip mall in Westminster, Saigon Bakery sits at a distance from the flurry of Asian restaurants in the OC, but gives most of them a run for their money with its beloved banh mi. Served on crusty baguettes (or fluffy round rolls) that are handmade fresh daily, these Vietnamese sandwiches are the stuff of legend here, drawing cars upon cars into the parking lot out front, full of eager customers who defend the succulent grilled pork as the area's best. What makes the banh mi even more revered are the cheap prices and Saigon's buy-two-get-one-free deal. There's Vietnamese iced coffee, Thai iced tea, and shakes (strawberry, avocado, and mocha) on the menu, too.
