We've never had Banh Mi before and were excited to try a new food. What better place for our first experience than Co Ba in Chelsea, which Serious Eats named some of the best Banh Mi in NYC? The Mr got the Banh Mi Thit Kho (pork belly) and I ordered the Banh Mi Chay (tofu). Everything was fresh & light- from the french bread to the pickled vegetables to the slice of jalapeno on top. These sandwiches reminded me of their soup cousin Pho. Basic concept and flavors, but with top ingredients, a great meal.
