in search of bahn mi, but where?

tauer | May 26, 2007 11:11 AM

So last time I was in New York I had an amazing bahn mi at a place between the Dumpling House and Lombardi's. It was a little hole in the wall space, tiny counter, but very good. We had it with some delicious sweet strong coffee. So now I'm thinking about heading back to New York and need to get my hands on another one. But where? I've been searching the boards and am still confused. I need to pick ONE place but one place dosen't seem to stand out above the rest. Below, is what I have so far. Any opinions?

Nicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches 
150 East Second St. between grand and hester (Ave. A) East Village
212-388-1088 classic bahn mi with paté, ham, ground pork, pickled carrot, cucumbers, cilantro, jalapeno, and mayo on a baguette. SUB: F, V to 2nd Avenue
