There are fast casual sandwich shops all over Boston, but not with flavors like this. Banh Mi OK has been open since March on School Street, and offers classic Vietnamese sandwiches along with smoothies and bowls. Try the banh mi on your first trip. Meat options include the classic ham/pate/pork combination, or options like tender grilled beef or marinated chicken. Each baguette sandwich is topped with pickled carrots and daikon and fresh herbs for a unique marriage of warm fillings and cool crunch. For all that savory goodness but without the bun, opt for a rice bowl, and don’t forget to tack on an order of egg or spring rolls to your order for a perfectly balanced lunch. Wash it all down with a Vietnamese iced coffee or rich fruit smoothie, and you’ve got your new favorite downtown lunch spot.
Banh Mi OK is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check in with the Facebook page for off-menu specials!
