I love that I can walk out my door and find culinary delights from around the world. It’s one of the draws of living in the City and San Francisco rarely disappoints and often delights with new flavors or twists on the local cuisine scene.
I found myself on Nob Hill in a hypoglycemic haze and desperate for a quick foodie fix. I deliriously wandered down Bush St. when I stumbled upon a little hole in the wall of a place called, Fresh Brew Coffee. With just a couple of tables out front, I eyeballed the mouthwatering Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwich in the hands of a happy patron.
I stumbled inside where I was met enthusiastically by the owner and sandwich maker, Jackie. Who meticulously assembled the popular Chicken Meatball and Avocado sub for me. And I wasted little time devouring the deliciously constructed creation.
Jackie claims that his secret to creating the best Banh Mi sandwich in San Francisco starts with the French roll that is perfectly crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. However, I must add that the combination of ingredients stuffed inside completes the meal. Somewhere, there may be a better Bahn Mi in San Francisco, but my money is on Jackie at Fresh Brew Coffee.
Don’t be alarmed by the hole in the wall charm of the place and instead you should rejoice at the $ 5 price of this terrific sandwich! Remember that in San Francisco, it’s often cash only at locally owned spots!
