Banh Mi and a Falafel

Happened to be in Dorchester on Saturday, and stopped for a banh mi at a place called 'Chau's Bakery' (I think). Pretty good, although I like the bread better at Mix Bakery. Chau's didn't toast it, that might be why I liked Mix better. This place looked pretty new, and the ingredients tasted really fresh to me. I had a shredded roast pork skin sandwich, which was a new one on me. Tasty. Had an iced coffee too. Can someone enlighten me on where the best place is to go for banh mi in Dorchester? I didn't really know what places to look for, so I just stopped at the first one I saw.

And on Sunday, I had a falafel from Moody's Falafel palace in Central Sq. I hadn't really heard anything about this place, but I thought the falafel was really good. Not quite at Rami's level, but better than the places I'd been going downtown (Phoenicia, Falafel King, the place in Quincy Market).
