Bành Mi Saigon (Manhattan, NY)

The restaurant was nothing more than a long, narrow corridor, about five or six feet wide, with a kitchen and counter at the end. Meaning no room to set up my camera, light, and background. Clients were coming in and going out constantly; one of my two assistants had to physically protect the set and me from being hit while I was styling the sandwich. I never had a Vietnamese sandwich before that day, and when the owners of Bành Mi Saigon gave a sandwich to my crew and me before we hit the road to shoot more creations around the country for Maxim’s Food Awards, they opened a new world to my taste buds. It was unlike any sandwich I had before. I still go back for more every time I am in the neighborhood.
