Best Thing We Ate This Weekend: Secret Banh Mi at Oh Banh Mi
The pork is tender and succulent, served like the others, with herbs and vegetables, and a side of jus that's basically pork juice and fish sauce. They marinate the pork overnight and roast it in a custom-designed caja china box slow and low. It's fantastic, and when it's gone it's gone, and that happens often. We felt we got lucky slipping in about 20 minutes before the shop closed.
Speranza restaurant six years ago, and then followed up with the banh mi shop (Hommert's wife is Vietnamese). But they have access to the space next door and are considering an expansion, thus the "soft" phase. But until then, this is a great hidden gem for a quick lunch. We'll be back for the lemongrass chicken, baby squid and cold cut banh mi. PS: Sorry we couldn't keep you off the internets, guys (1997 Hyperion Ave.; 323-665-1941).
