I'm still not sure what makes Cambodian sandwiches different from banh mi (Vietnamese hoagies), but Num Pang does it well. They have a variety of standard sandwiches (the Hoisin Meatball is a classic) - and a seasonal menu of featured sandwiches. I had the pork belly and pickled asian pear sandwich the other day - absolutely delicious. Fatty pork belly? Always a winner. Pickled pear? Added a great, crunchy texture to the sandwich and made me think that I should probably just pickle everything. Seating is limited. Sriracha is always on hand. Yum!
Overpriced and not worth the wait. I ordered the grilled chicken, which comes with two market sides. The grilled chicken was fine, but the portion was small. The sides I got were delicious though. I got roasted beets with goat cheese (who knew that such a combination would be so tasty?!) and seaweed noodle salad (could've used more seaweed, less noodle). Every day, they feature a lengthy list of vegetable sides, which is pretty cool. It's tough to find fresh and well-prepared vegetables in this city.
