Latte Express

As a longtime fan of the amazing Vietnamese BBQ pork sandwiches at Little Paris on Clement (R.I.P.) and on Stockton Street (it's still around, and still delicious), I sampled many so-called greats looking for an equal that was a little more central. Finally, I can say without hesitation that Latte Express on 5th at Market blows them all away. The secret? A steaming crockpot keeps the pork dripping with savory meat juice all day. Then you just ask for #4 and a nice little lady lavishes a mini baguette (or, by request, a croissant) with strips of BBQ pork, daikon, carrots, onions, jalapenos, cilantro, and mayo. For only $3.80!
