stopped through Brooklyn's 8th ave chinatown and split a ridiculously good grilled pork banh mi. good toasted bun, very juicy and saucy filling which tasted like it was not just grilled, but maybe breaded and grilled, crushed peanuts, a decent amount of veg (not overflowing like the jade store place in manhattan's chinatown). we didn't get any spice, but surely it would've kicked it up, but it was so good, so savory and juicy. a hint of fish sauce and the temperature of the whole sandwich was good too, like fresh out the toaster/grill. it's definitely smaller than the manhattan jade store place, but every delicious bite is well worth it. get out there! Next time I go, having the meatball, me thinks.
