So, I thought today would be the day for my first ever banh mi. I walked over to Mei Sum from my office around 1:00pm and could not find this place for the life of me (using the address 40 Beach). At that address the only thing could have been this place was all closed up. Are these guys on vacation? Do they close early? Or did I just plain miss it? FYI, to get there I walked down Chauncey Street (from the Financial District) and took a right on Beach. As an aside, I then went to Mike's and they were out of the beef and the cold cuts did not look appetizing to me but I am not sure they would anywhere. Ended up getting a mighty good steak and cheese sandwich at Hot Tomatoes that I would call the best of its kind in the financial district (easily beating out Al's).
