Beignets are a very specific style of doughnut: yeasted dough rolled out thin and fried up puffy and crisp. Unlike at a more traditional doughnut shop, the folks at Lynda Sandwich don't make your beignets until you order them. It might take 10 minutes, but they're worth the wait. Lynda Sandwich is a Vietnamese bánh mì shop that pays equal attention to making this specialty from New Orleans. It fries up two shapes of beignet: small triangles that puff up hollow and crisp on each corner, or finger-shaped strips that stay chewy. It's up to you which texture you prefer. Each shape can be flavored in three ways: traditional powdered sugar, honey-and-turbinado sugar, or cinnamon sugar. A $3.50 order is big enough to share, but you'll want your own order—trust us. Each variation comes with a pool of sweetened condensed milk at the bottom, which you'll mop up with the lusty greed of a rutting animal. $
