Banh Mi

2017 Winner: Pho Viet’s

You can find outstanding purveyors of this brilliant Vietnamese street-food sandwich in Fields Corner and Savin Hill. But our favorite cheap, satisfying, healthy sandwich—with its vivid flavors of Asian cold cuts or grilled meats, Kewpie mayo, chilies, quick pickles and fresh herbs—is located in a humble food court adjacent to an Asian supermarket in Allston. A great crackly rice- and wheat-flour baguette plus abundant fillings make this the four-dollar lunch to beat in Boston.
