been going to bahn mi ba le for several years now. i am in love with their bahn mi thit (headcheese and pate) and i rarely order anything else. i have purchased their chicken and different pork bahn mi over the years for family who also use them as the standard that all other bahn mi are compared to. the prices can't be beat. i have eaten bahn mi at several other places around the world (not vietnam) and still prefer this little joint in a small strip mall. their business is good as there can be a wait just to get into the place. they do offer other food including pho but i just can't pass on the bahn mi. the bread roll they use is amazing. i do notice that the sodium content is elevated because of how thirsty i get after i consume my favorite #1 sandwich on their menu. great food to take on a plane!
