“Best Baguettes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

Came back three times during our stay as we couldnt get enough of these sandwiches. Not to be missed if you are in HCMC, not a bad price either!

Went twice in two days!!! The bacon here is amazing and I hadn't found anything like it in Vietnam! Would come back to HCMC just for this!

Best place to have a sandwich. Its just a small cafe on the streets but every bite was worth it!
Nice crunchy bread and bacon!

“Ok if you like bacon”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

This place is right on the edge of the backpackers area. Many westerners go here for the sandwiches. The staff speaks good English which is a good thing to find in Saigon. The main draw here is bacon. Now I am from the States and I have seen sandwiches. Here all over town you can find banh mi, the local sandwich for around $1. Here they have the imported bacon I am told so the prices are much higher. Now I was only here one time with my friend from Taiwan and we were not overwhelmed by the stuff they put out here. The bacon was only a few not a pile. You can't believe it but after we ate here we went to the Greek place just up the street sine we weren't full. So be ready when you come here you might have to order two not just one sandwich if you are really hungry.

“Oink! Oink! I'm one happy pig.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

You can really pig out at this place...I did!
One day I chose bacon, the day next sausages, but you can also have chorizo, with a pick 'n' mix of breads and additional fillings, you're really spoilt for choice.
It's great concept and great break from the traditional foods of Vietnam.
It really sets you up for the day but make sure find it on your first day in Saigon, as we missed two days of tasty piggy sarnies.
