1) $8 Cuban Sandwitch at Babalu 2020 Atlantic ave
High class sit down restaurant with top notch cuban music playing at an enjoyable volume. The Cuban sandwich I had was the best I have ever had. This place beats anything I have seen in AC. Luxury at an affordable price. What the Trop wants to be but can't. Great experience.
2) Vietnamese 'Hoagie' Sandwiches near Mississippi and Artic. This is just down the block from the famous White House. They serve what seems to be the genuine article, 'Banh Mi'. $6 got me a top notch Vietnameese coffe and sandwich. They actually warned about the coffee being strong; when will starbucks warn about it being weak? The are not open all the time, I had lunch on sunday around 11:00. Query google on [Vietnamese Sandwich] if you have never heard of Vietnamese Sandwichs. I really liked this place. Sorry I did not write the name down. If it is closed, eat at the White House near by.
3) Fish sandwich at 'Fish Heads' soul food on Kentucky and Artic. Really nice sandwich and sides served in styro foam clam shell in a fast food type environment. I liked the sweet potato cheese cake too.
Honorable mention: White House. Pig out portions of above average meat and fixings on mediocre bread. Sorry, I call'em as I eat'em. Don't wait on line like a schmuck. (1)Take a number. (2)Go across the street to the bakery and have a nice pizza slice $1 and a canoli. The canoli mix is kept refigerated in a pastry bag. The canoli is assembled when you order; like it should be. (3)Go back and order your sandwich and eat it across the street in the park. This might sound like alot to eat, but portion size part of why you went to the White House (don't lie).
