Does the second location of this Vietnamese sandwich shop indicate the beginning of a banh mi war? If so, Ba Le (Nhu Lan’s competitor) should be a little worried. The savory pastries are flaky and decadent, the iced coffee is sweet and strong, and the sandwiches are delivered on crusty mini baguettes and sport flavorful toppings such as a lush pork liver pâté. If there’s a deficit to these banh mi, it’s that they go light on the jalapeño. But Nhu Lan still has a leg up: This location offers something Ba Le doesn’t—a full line of pho.
