I stumbled upon Double Dragon after a conversation with one my cooking school instructors. She said that if I really liked Bahn Mi then I really need to head to Double Dragon on 12th and Division in South East. I hopped right over there and was not disappointed. In fact, I texted a chef friend and asked if he'd been there and his response was simply, "OMG, so good!"
The food here is flavorful to the edge of hot and spicy. I left with my mouth feeling it, but in a really good way. I had the vegetable banh mi -- I typically don't really like veggie sandwiches because they are often so boring -- but the flavors were just bursting out of this one. The sandwich had a babagonoush hummus on it and pickled red onions. It was fantastic. Don't go here looking for tradition, but go for the fantastic.
The environment here is very casual. Outdoor seating is on pick-nick tables and the bathrooms, well, they were porta-potties. But look past that, because they food is totally awesome.
