Are you hungry? Do you like tasty sandwiches? Are you in the market for pork buns or syndicated Asian television shows on DVD?

If you answered “yes” to any of the following questions you should definitely check out Kim’s Sandwich shop. $3 nets you an incredible sandwich. Like a Ramones song it’s short, sweet and exactly what you needed…

The banh mi were just ok. Fillings were fresh, however they used a regular mayonnaise and a tough/chewier baguette. Had higher expectations for the French bread.

I can't bring myself to eat anywhere else when I'm in Portland at lunchtime. The sandwiches are unbelievably amazing. They don't make their own bread, but with the careful toasting, you almost can't tell. You can't beat the price, but I would pay twice as much (don't tell Kim). You must get a Thai iced tea or coffee to go with your sandwich. Kim and her daughter are incredibly friendly. I moved away for 2 years and Kim still remembered me when I came in. Going into Kim's is just a great experience, and I guarantee you will be craving that Banh Mi until you go in and order another.

Kim's is a weekly favorite for our entire family. Located in a warm and friendly asian grocery shop the counter at Kim's offers a long list of Veitnamese sandwiches all for under $3! They are served on a toasted roll, filling and super tasty. Kim's also sells buns on the weekend that they drive directly up from Boston. So if you stop in on Sunday you can get super fresh roast pork, custard and coconut buns (to name a few). Kim's also makes delicious fresh fruit shakes in the summer. Take out only.
