After going to Saigon Sandwiches (finally) I was on the lookout for cheap Vietnamese sandwiches closer to home. I found a place on Broadway between Grant and Stockton called Vietnam Restaurant I. The address is 620 Broadway and their business card says they are open from 8am to 3am (wow).

They have 4 choices of sandwich - pork, bbq pork, chicken, and bbq chicken. I had chicken and bbq pork (or it may have been bbq chicken and pork). The total was $4 for these two sandwiches. The price per sandwich ranges from $1.75 to $2.75.

The sandwiches are composed of : french roll, cilantro, carrots marinaded in fish sauce, cucumbers, hot peppers, and your choice of meat. I like the marinated carrots rather than the plain raw carrots at Saigon Sandwiches. On the down side, Vietnam Restaurant leaves out the mayo and has less turnover. Since I live only a few blocks away, I see myself eating there weekly. A friend told me the pho there was good, so I will try that next.

A friend told me she gets Vietnamese sandwiches on Irving and twenty-something avenue. I never make it out there anymore, so I don't have any further info on that - does anyone else?
