Let's talk about banh mi for a moment. Oh, how we love that totally cheap and satisfying Vietnamese sandwich, with light crispy French bread layered with mayo, or butter, or chili paste, and stuffed with delicious meats and the imperative pickled veggies and cilantro. It's a New Orleans staple. So Last Friday, Eater asked you, dearest readers, to tell us what you believe to be the best banh mi in New Orleans, and tell us you did.
While some commenters were super secretive, as in "the best Banh Mi in NOLA is found in Agiers. They sell them every Sat and Sun morning. If you don't know the location you'll have to wait for the Tet Festival..." most of you openly declared your love for banh mi hotspots, with Dong Phuong Bakery in New Orleans East taking the top spot . Not surprising then that they actually provide many of your favorite Vietnamese restaurants with their trademark French bread too.
Here now is the reader decided map of the Best Banh Mi in New Orleans, ranked in order of commenter's suggestions.
All of the entries had at least two comments in their favor, which is why the very worthy Cafe Minh, Pho Hoa, and Ba Chi Canteen didn't make the cut. If you still don't see your favorite, leave a comment below or send us an email.
