    New favorite bahn mi in the city, just delicious. Cub Classic is utterly amazing, with superb BBQ pork, pate, perfectly toasted bread (+ jalepenos). Notice how many quality adjectives were used?

    Unlike some other lemongrass chicken banh mis I've had the one at Xe May was perfectly tender and juicy. The "Hog" was also packed with flavor. They got the art of toasting bread down to a T!

    Sidecar beef bahn mi sandwich extra spicy on wheat. Very good and only $13 with drink & kind bar. Got it for takeout during covid they seemed sanitary, had a plexiglass wall & contactless payment.

    Really good sandwiches. Iced Vietnamese coffee and limeade were bad, we agreed. It’s inside the building on the left of the album cover to Led Zeppelin’s “Physical Graffiti

    Super sub classic aka banh mi dac biet. As blasphemous as it feels to verbally order a super sub here, I really enjoyed the sandwich. 7-8 bucks for a sandwich, cash only. Take it Togo.

    super cub classic was top notch. My only wish is that their taco offerings incorporated Mexican style meats eg. A Vietnamese version of an al pastor spit would be incredible.

    I've been coming here for years. If you're not washing your báhn mi down with a basil limeade fizz, you're doing it wrong!

    The Sidecar (grilled beefsteak w/ pineapple chutney banh mi) is one of the best sandwiches in the city.

    Meat lovers - please please please get the Cub Classic, and make it spicy. It's definitely not a traditional bahn mi but that's what makes it even better.

    Let it sit for a second so the sauce softens the bread a bit. Vegetarian bahn mi is pretty big. Also crumbs everywhere.

    Oh my gosh. They somehow get their chicken to taste like bacon. One of the best Bahn Mi’s I’ve ever eaten

    Had 'The "Hog"', very tastey. Small seating, friendly staff - next time trying the "Super Cub Classic". Totally paid twice once on seamless, then again on p/u. They called me right after to refund.

    Order the lambretta. It is a perfect mix of spicy, the lamb is cooked perfectly and the bread is perfectly crusty.

    Get a super cub or the hog and ask for it extra spicy. $9 weekday lunch special!

    The Banh mi is exactly what you want. And the spicy lambretta - awesome. They deliver, too - fast and pretty cheap. This place is great.

    Inventive bahn mi. The Lambretta, a coconut curry lamb bahn mi, is excellent. The vegetarian bahn mi on whole wheat bread is also a great choice!

    Quick, easy and delicious. Note, cash only. Get the hog or pilot sandwiches and a side of the summer rolls.

    Always get The Hog, spicy, with extra meat (that last thing is not on the menu, but I can't get enough of that grilled pork!)

    Agree with consensus- sandwiches are super tasty but light on the meat. Ask for extra if you're really hungry. Got the sidecar

    Xe May puts has an eccentric take on bahn mi... so eccentric that they're mixing grilled beefsteak with pineapple chutney to create the tasty "Sidecar." Read more

    The lunch special is awesome. I highly recommend the Sidecar, the pineapple chutney is to die for.

    Don't fear the extra spicy. It's really just "Sriracha" (which you love) + jalapeños + a kicker of chili oil. No need to be a daredevil.

    A perfectly crusty baguette pairs well with fresh and crisp fillings. You can customize your banh mi with one of three different spice levels.

    Awesome bahn mi, preferred the sidecar over the original. Iced Vietnamese coffee is tasty, leaning towards sweet.

    Mild spice is plenty spicy. Go with the lemongrass chicken sandwich for hearty lunch under $9.

    Wow the Lam'bretta with cumin lamb is fantastic. Skip the chicken offering: the meat is a bit rubbery

    I had the superclub classic banh mi which was good, but not amazing like some of the banh mi restaurants in Chinatown. Also I wish the bread had been taken out earlier.

    Get the green papaya salad with any sandwich. The sauce is dark, rich, and spicy. Plus it comes with 'shrooms!
