No tricks on the bánh mì here-straightforward ham, crisp strips of bacon, fat globules hardened and ready to melt in the warmth of your mouth, snuggling next to sweet pickled cucumbers and carrots, with a sprig of cilantro and chopped jalapeños. It's in a baguette as fat as you'll ever find, more French roll than breadstick, with a golden crust that offers only the slightest, most delightful resistance as your teeth tear into fluffy bliss. Thanh Tam sells 10 bánh mìs, almost all as accessible to the general public (ham and Spam? Ham and egg? No more excuses), but none mitigated for non-Vietnamese tastes. And, of course, for the outlandishly cheap price of $2.50.
