Battle of the Banh Mi: Da Vang vs. Pho House

Ahhhh, the banh mi. Such a tasty and cheap little Vietnamese sandwich. Soft French bread filled with carrots, jalapeños, cilantro, and a delightful meat. It's one of our favorites, but we tend to overlook the little guys when we are at our favorite Vietnamese spots because, well, because there are just so many other awesome eats, like pho. (When was the last time you passed up a bowl of pho for a banh mi? Yep. That's what we thought).

But this week, we threw the pho to the wind in the name of battle, and we put Phoenix favorite Da Vang up against Vietnamese newcomer Pho House to see who has the better banh mi.

May the best sandwich win!
