where to get Vietnamese baguettes (in West LA, hopefully)??

I had an **amazing** vegetarian Banh Mi sandwich last week at a shop downtown. Wow. I'd like to take a crack at making a version at home. But I am stymied by the bread. A French baguette would be quite wrong . . . the French version has too crispy a crust, with a different taste. It just wouldn't be a banh mi.

But I gather than there is also a Vietnamese version of the baguette. Anyone have an idea where in LA to get this? Ideally, there'd be a place in WLA (I live in Santa Monica). But I'd be willing to drive to get the authentic version, since it would be only an occasional/rare purchase.
