Paris SANDWICH Has a Banh Mi Truck Out on the Streets?!
Yesterday, Paris Sandwich, not to be confused with the Korean bakery chain, Paris Baguette, rolled out their brand new truck to Midtown West parking on 52nd Street and 6th Avenue right next to Phil’s Steaks and the 52nd Street Thai Cart.
Known for their out of the ordinary Banh Mi sandwiches served on their own original baguettes baked in a hearth fired oven, Paris Sandwich currently has two locations in Chinatown on Mott Street and Grand Street.
A quick look at the menu shows $8 Banh Mi sandwiches (which is a little steep when you know you can get them downtown for about half the price, or less), platters for $8/9, and some intriguing Pandan Waffle desserts for $2. Our Downtown Lunch correspondent, Andrea, actually checked out both Chinatown locations last August and found the Banh Mis so-so in comparison to Banh Mi Saigon.
Early adopters, what’s your take? Are you happy to at least have some more Banh Mi options in the area? Let us know what you think in the comments.
