I thought I knew all there was to know about the bánh mì, but in the past few years, a number of new places have opened around Chicago hoping to appeal to the sandwich's growing fan base. I decided to sample the scene, to see if there was anything I was missing.
'2 asian brothers' on Serious Eats
2 Asian Brothers in North Park gets about everything right for the Dac Biet ($4.50). The bread could be a little crispier and lighter, but the meats were spot on, especially the pâté. There was also a good helping of pickled carrots and daikon, plus enough jalapeño to give each bite some real heat.
