Saigon Restaurant and Bakery - Closed

Location Description:

Banh mi are Vietnamese submarine sandwiches built on airy French baguettes swiped with mayonnaise. They usually contain pate, as well as some variety of meats topped with sweet pickled carrots and daikon, strips of cucumber, sprigs of cilantro, and fresh slices of jalapeno. The best banh mi in the Twin Cities are made by the young kids behind the counter at Saigon. This is why lines often snake from the counter all the way to the front door. This and the fact that the prices are so low that you can buy a full lunch for what other restaurants charge for a single cup of coffee. If you can get one of the hotly sought-after tables, you'll likely agree. If not, stand on line at the banh mi counter and prepare for crispy, spicy takeout gold.
