Maybe they called it Paris as in moveable feast? No matter, if the sandwiches suck...

Yea, I tried the Special last week myself, and it was pretty bad. The bread was too spongy. The texture of the meat was kinda gross. The whole sandwich was unusually sweet, that is until you bite into the jalapeno at which point, all you tasted was the heat.

Not sure how they managed to so grossly miss the mark on what should be a relatively easy sandwich.

Still no decent banh mi option in JC.

It is 9 dollars at Cafe Saigon ("CS"). The Banh Mi comes with a salad. I suggest CS offer a single sandwich (minus salad) at 7 dollars minimum. If you can get one in the 6 to 8 dollar range in FiDi Manhattan, it should not be expensive in JC!

I'm a big fan of banh mi sandwiches and I'll definitely be checking these guys out. I always found it puzzling that there aren't more banh mi options here in downtown considering there's a big enough vietnamese population here to support it. I know Saigon Cafe offers it for lunch, but at $9.50, it's ridiculously expensive.

I've never actually done the banh mi from the chinatown shop since it's right around the corner from Saigon Bakery, which has my favorite. But I'll always go straight from Saigon for my banh mi to Paris because they have excellent iced milk tea. Really hoping they'll have it at the truck too.

Yes. The menu that they were handing out had the Chinatown addresses on it.

I thought that $6.25 for a sandwich was expensive. Their online menu for Chinatown shows $4.50 for the Grilled Pork Baguette. But if I were in Chinatown, I wouldn't be eating bread.

Yeah I thought it was a French food truck. Here the United States and Vietnam suffered to gain indepedence against the French and communism yet it calls itself "Paris" sounds like a monitary lure to me.

It was parked in front of Sawadee on Newark in the am. If that means anything, looked like they were getting their daily prep done right there.

These are banh mi sandwiches.

This is the first time I had a Vietnamese sandwich. I had the grilled pork. It tasted great with the pickled daikon, carrots, cilantro and cucumber. There was some chili pepper in it too. The grilled pork reminds me of the grilled pork chop at Nha Trang Place.
