This literal hole-in-the wall has no seating, either indoors or out. It is grab-and-go. However, the made-to-order banh mi sandwiches are delicious, inexpensive, and fast. A trio of fresh shrimp spring rolls stuffed into a soft wrapper with mint, lettuce, and noodles include a peanut dipping sauce. Combo #8 with ham and pate is made with crunchy bread and packed with pickled veggies. Pate, soy sauce, and cilantro are optional.
Shumai dumplings and barbecue buns dim sum are also available.
