Mendocino Farms is holding an online poll asking fans where its next location should land. So far Santa Monica is whooping the pork belly banh mi out of its neighbors reaches, with 35% of the vote (Manhattan Beach holds down second place with just 19%). Considering there’s a massive hole in the sandwich chain’s portfolio between Downtown and Marina del Rey, that outcome would leave the terrain still very unbalanced. Fortunately the voting, to quote Karen Carpenter, has only just begun. Elsewhere, Midtown Lunch reports that the chain has just put its “PB3” (the Elvis-inspired peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich) on the menu permanently. [Mendocino Farms]
