About a month ago, I wrote a long post detailing my experience at Saigon Banh Mi (ridiculous wait, decent sandwich).
In response, several people (Nina W, The Rogue, amp156, and ivie) pointed me towards Nicky's, who I paid a visit to shortly thereafter.
I've really been slacking on posting this, and I'm not really in the mood to get into a long thing right now, but...
Nicky's pork chop banh mi is the best version of the sandwich I've yet had, better than Saigon, So 1, etc. The pork chop was delicious, the vegetables complimented everything in a much more subtle and enjoyable way, and the bread roundly blew away the rolls used by the others (sitting on a bench in that park on the other side of Houston, I must have looked like a nut staring at my sandwich like I was).
The lemonade is also worthy of mention. Really nice stuff.
