There are plenty of banh mi places around the city, but this Inner Richmond spot is one of the best. The sandwiches ($4-$6), made on house-baked rolls - including whole wheat - feature the usual meats, or pork belly or crispy duck, along with the traditional crunchy/spicy accompaniments and Vietnamese coleslaw.
The latest entrant is Café Bunn Mi, a quick-service Inner Richmond Vietnamese cafe that sets itself from the fray with a wide array of gourmet banh mis, handwritten daily on a chalkboard menu in a clean-well lighted, brightly painted storefront (replete with free WiFi); other Saigon staples, such as pho, rice dishes, three types of fries and exotically flavored drinks (including mojito-style lemonade and durian shakes), round out the offerings.
Did Clement Street need another banh mi sandwich shop? Probably, seeing as how it offers smoky vegetable, Buddha tofu and oh yeah, crispy duck in addition to the typical grilled pork and meatball.
