    A tiny little storefront between St. Johns and Lincoln, on the west side of the street.

    ...is it going to be a Bahnmigos location?
  • No idea. All the sign said was Vietnamese sandwiches. With Banhmigos on Park Place, I doubt they'd open so close. 
  • yay.  i havent gone to bahnmigos b/c i heard negative things (and i live near it).  they need some competition it seems to step it up.  and i wasnt a fan of coffee bites despite repeated visits/tries. 
  • Coffee Bites just closed in early April, so this space didn't go without a renter for very long.

  • Really? I am head over heels in LOVE with Bahnmigos.

    Bahnmigos is a decent joint for the neighborhood and I'm glad it's here, though my preference definitely lies with Hanco's. Bahnmigos' sandwiches seem too bready and underfilled, personally. Maybe we'll get a Hanco's over here?
  • Hanco's would be nice. But the star of the Bahnmigo's menu is the grilled pork, medium spicy bahnimi. With a side of fresh spring rolls. Under $9!

    I second the vote for the grilled pork, medium spicy. It's my go-to at Banhmigos.

    They had the gate open this evening. The place has been remodeled, construction equipment now gone. Loft has been removed.

    Awaiting kitchen appliances.
  • praying for it to be hancos
  • i believe they're two separate spots.  Coffee Bites is gone, and the Vietnamese sandwich shop looks a door or two down.  I just walked past, but I'm not 100% sure.  It makes no difference.  I look forward to the sandwich shop.  
  • I don't think it'll be Hancos.  It has its name on the awning.

    I made it tonight's dinner. I had the Classic Sandwich. It was yummy and very affordable.

    They had staff in training, as well as staff who appeared to have similar experience.

  • Awesome! Maybe Vietnemese sandwiches will be the new Mexican place in this neighborhood. One will open up every block or so.
  • Yes. We now have three banh mi joints, if we're counting Bunk'r at Berg'n.
  • Finally a new restaurant on Washington with a sensible name. No confusion around "Bahn Mi Place".

    I predict success.
  • Great sandwich! And the owner hooked me up with a free lemonade.
    Spring rolls are pretty yummy too!
  • I tried it, and like it better than Bahnmigos— Bahnmigos' sandwiches always felt a little scanty to me. This joint feels like it may have been started by an ambitious ex-Hanco's employee.
