The simplest, most uncomplicated thing I ate in San Francisco was also my favorite! The flavors melted together to give you the perfect bite. It was beyond delicious. The roasted pork, the fresh jalapenos, the sauce and for $3.50. Pure perfectionRecommended for:

In a rough-and-tumble area of the Tenderloin known as Little Saigon, Saigon Sandwich has been turning out the city’s best made-to-order banh mi since 1981. The only sign of the times: Vietnamese barbecued pork, pickled carrots and onions, and jalapeño and cilantro on a crusty French baguette now costs $3.75 instead of $3.25. Shop the grocery selection for sriracha sauce or ginger candies while you wait.Recommended for:

Saigon Sandwiches serves amazing banh mi for just around $3 a sandwich. At these prices, you won't even mind walking through the TL and standing in a potentially long line with other salivating San Franciscans...
Better make that order for two, after all.Recommended for:

Yet another Tenderloin gem. It's been a while since I've been, but Saigon Sandwich used to be a favorite lunch destination during my law school days. And really, with their cheap and delicious sandwiches, it's quite a bargain. It's cash only, so make sure you have the $3-ish on you. There's no sitting room in place, but I'd recommend taking it down to the Civic Center area for a nice-ish picnic.
Like anything else in San Francisco, however, make sure that you time your lunch trip right or you'll hit a long line.

If you love cheap eats & especially Asian food, try out the banh mi sandwiches at Saigon Sandwiches. Sure the area might be ghetto, but the food is outstanding.
Each sandwich is packed with your choice of meat and spiced up with flavor. Try out the patte as well as the meatball versions, or you can stick with what you know. Ladies working are really nice at this hole in the wall, the crackheads outside not so much. Perfect meal or an afternoon snack to follow up a trip to Turtle Tower up a few blocks.

For the quality of food and the price, this has to be one of the best buys in San Francisco, hands down, game over. The sandwiches here are noticeably special, even to people who rarely eat banh mi. There is almost always a wait, but it's well worth it. The che desserts in the fridge ($1.50) are great too.

Looking for a cheap and tasty meal on the go? Saigon Sandwiches is an absolute must if you love bánh mì . I actually have their number saved on my phone, so I can call in my order and give the ladies a heads up before I arrive, and thus avoid the long lines.
While there is plenty of competition on the block, I will forever be loyal to the ladies at Saigon. They make a mean gristle-free grilled chicken banh mi with a perfect ratio of meat to sweetened pickled veggies, all on a top quality baguette.
