Sandwiches are pretty much my jam, and it can be hard to find a really a good sandwich in Los Angeles (I am from Philly, afterall). So I'm always excited when a new place pops up that offers a fun alternative to the usual sandwich. Hero Shop in Downtown Los Angeles takes a twist on bánh mì sandwiches with really delicious fillings and flavors mixed with the traditional garnishes of the Vietnamese style sandwich.

Some of our favorites include the Spicy & Sour Chicken, Lemongrass Tofu, and BBQ Pork sandwiches. They mix a bit of spice and tanginess into a filling and satisfying sandwich that I'm craving more of already.

  1. These look so delicious – almost makes me want a sandwich at 9:30am! Also, I just love that first photo. Two thumbs up.

  2. oh my gosh, I love vietnamese sandwiches…that place looks pretty incredible. I used to live around the corner from a hole in the wall that made the best vietnamese sandwiches, went there probably a few too many times a week! Yum!

  12. This looks so good – I’m in Montana, but I wish I could have one for my lunch today!
    I mentioned your book “Oh Joy, Inc” on my blog post today – and I credited it for launching me on the path to blogging! My blog is: the most — of every moment, in case you want to see what I wrote 🙂
    Thanks for all the helpful information your book contains!

  13. I never thought I would want to live anywhere but on the east coat, but I have second thoughts every time you post about food spots in your area 😉

  14. the next time you are back in philadelphia, you’ll have to try a great new spot to get pho and bahn mi – stock. it’s in fishtown and shouldn’t be missed!

  15. we start at 9 and go until about 2, as long as we don’t sell out before that! thanks for making me smile/making my day!

  16. This is wonderful! Last year I taught a 3D design for graphic design and we did food trucks. I’m teaching it again this fall and I must include this one in my project presentation!
