If you’re avoiding meat, check out Chu Minh, a vegan banh mi spot that loads their sandwiches with tofu and different plant-based imitations. The best of the eight banh mis on the menu is the barbecue pork, which has a great sweet and sticky sauce. We also love that Chu Minh feeds the homeless every Sunday.
