My review on TripAdvisor:
I ordinarly try a restaurant a few times before I recommend it for this site but this evening I had the most amazing sandwich for dinner and I had to share this with the world.

I was at this tiny sandwich shop in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, Banh Mi Place at 824B Washington Avenue ordering a sandwich before an event at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I was in the mood for something different for dinner so I ordered the Classic Sandwich which is pate, Vietnamese ham, roasted ground pork with mayo, cucumbers, julienne carrots and daikon radish and cilantro and it was served on a toasted French baguette.

The sandwich was mind-blowingly good and I could not believe how the complex flavors and sauces just blended so well on the sandwich. The French baguette was so fresh and crusty that it had a nice sound when I bit into it. With each bite, I could taste the spicy sauce and the cilantro and the way reacted on my tongue was great. The sandwich had amazing flavors.
The service was very quick and very friendly. The woman who made my sandwich pushed my order ahead of someone else’s who ordered the same thing as me so I could be on my way which I thought was very nice of her.
I never even had a sandwich like this when I visited Vietnam a few years ago and I have to say that I was very impressed by this little shop. This will warrant another visit in the future
