Banh Mi Cho Cu Goes 'Mua 2 Tang 1'
The sign above--taken under poor lighting conditions as we headed up Magnolia last night--announces great news for lovers of the Vietnamese sandwich: Banh Mi Cho Cu is now offering the same "buy 2, get 1 free" special for which its chief rival, Banh Mi Che Cali, is known.
We chose Banh Mi Cho Cu as "Best Sandwich at 5 a.m." last year, and it ranks in the top three of the dozens of places to get charcuterie on crusty rolls in Orange County. That it's now an even bigger stone-cold bargain than it was only adds to its cachet. Three sandwiches for five bucks? No wonder there's no banh mi truck selling $6.50 sandwiches in OC.
