Best Banh Mi: Moon Rabbit

You’ll find a wealth of traditional Vietnamese standbys at this fancy-ish Vietnamese eatery, and while you should experience the full menu, do not overlook the banh mi. Here, the humble sandwich gets a not-so-basic spin with fillings like crispy breaded chicken breast and spicy sate, king trumpet mushrooms and marinated tofu, or—as seen in the must-try bo kho dip—braised beef shanks and an ultra savory sauce to dunk it all in.
