Bánh Mì Buzz: Hanco’s and An Choi Are Now Open


Back in December we brought good news for Brooklyn and Manhattan bnh m lovers alike Hancos was coming to Park Slope, and Vietnamese street-eats spot An Choi was to open on the Lower East Side. Well, over the weekend they both started welcoming customers. An Choi is in neighborhood-preview mode at 85 Orchard Street, near Broome Street, and while they arent yet serving pho (thatll come sometime this week), you can order a porchettalike crispy pig sandwich, among others. The sandwiches arent overly packed like at Bnh M Saigon, but what the pork one, which is sure to become a signature, lacks in heft, it more than makes up for in flavor. More when the joint fully opens. Meanwhile, over in Park Slope, the second location of Hancos, at 350 Seventh Avenue, at 10th Street, only opened this Saturday but there are already feverishly excited reports on the Brooklynian message board.
