Just went to this new non-asian hood Bahn Mi shop @ 150 E 2nd St. Had a chicken "samwich". Not bad, better than I expected, bread was ok, they use sliced chillis, which some places don't. $3.75, which is a bit more than Chinatown + Brooklyn, but hey, it's still a great deal. They have a small menu (good) which has pork combo, chicken, and portobello. I've never seen a chicken or portobello Bahn Mi, but why not? It's now a regular stop before I head to d.b.a. for a Sunday afternoon tipple in the beer garden. I wish this place exited when I lived next door 20 years ago. I might have never moved, no matter how many smack dealers I had to walk through. God, I love NYC.
