Scrumptious and inexpensive, Vietnamese food has recently taken a prominent spot in the food landscape of metropolitan cities all over the country, and New York City is no exception.
Located right across the street from Baruch College in New York, Luu’s Baguette offers a wide selection of Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches, pho noodles, and milk tea drinks that will please any palette.
The restaurant is small and unassuming, and the food is enormously flavorful. Ten dollars can buy you a huge and satisfying meal.
Xe May Sandwich Shop
Specializing mainly in banh mi sandwiches, Xe May’s on St. Mark’s Place in New York is widely known for its generous portions and high food quality.
The most popular item on the menu is the “Pilot,” a tasty Vietnamese banh mi sandwich piled high with lemongrass chicken and an assortment of vegetables. Many visitors also like to sample Xe May’s delicious Vietnamese salads and tacos, made with fresh, high-quality ingredients.
A relatively new Vietnamese restaurant that recently opened in Chinatown is Ninh Kieu, located on Chrystie Street and easily accessible by the B and D trains.
Ninh Kieu is most visited for its delicious Pho, which is well-seasoned and never leaves a strong aftertaste of MSG. The menu is huge and offers all kinds of Vietnamese food, including pancakes and marinated seafood dishes.
