“Yummyy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I ordered the #3. I didn't like it very much. It was bland. But my bf and my sister had the #11 which was DELICIOUS! I also got the Vietnamese coffee which is always so goooooood. Their croissants are only $1!!! So cheap! We walked out with 5 croissants. Yummmyyyyyy. There's a $5 min to use credit/debit card.

“Banh mi and boba is just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

K Sandwiches was featured in a local newspaper so it seemed like a good place to try a banh mi in SD. There's plenty of seating inside, a small grocery section with ready made foods, baked goods, and sandwiches made to order. The sandwich menu is pretty extensive and includes the typical banh mi made with french bread as well as croissant sandwiches.

The boyfriend and I opted for a grilled chicken and grilled pork banh mi. The grilled pork was specified in the paper so we got one of those for sure. The meat in the banh mi was ok, but they didn’t impress me. The flavor was there, but it was a bit dry. I loved the abundance of pickled veggies, especially the daikon. The bread wasn’t that good - it had a nice crust but lacked the chewy innards.

I also got a taro boba. The taro flavor was pretty good but a bit too sweet. The boba had a great chew and consistency but tasted like nothing. Seriously, it had no taste. I like my boba a bit on the sweet side. I was hungry so the meal hit the spot, but I want to continue my search for boba and banh mi in SD.

“Best bahn mi for a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2010

Vietnamese sandwiches are hard to find sometimes, but this restaurant opens at 6 AM and serves up delicious cold cuts, grilled meats, and freshly made croissants that simply cannot be beat, in taste or price.

Having everything from the regular Vietnamese ham cold cuts to grilled pork, beef, chicken, and even 2 for a dollar egg rolls, K's provides an amazing breakfast, a cheap lunch, or a filling dinner for the price of a short wait.

“There's plenty of reasons why people love coming here. Food is definitely one of them! Perfect little sandwich shop...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2008

There's plenty of reasons why people love coming here. Food is definitely one of them! Perfect little sandwich shop right by Kearny and Mesa College so they always have people hanging around, playing cards. Delicious food for on the go!
