Restaurant Preview: Grab Ly's Banh Mi

This is the banh mi shop you didn’t know you needed in your life.

Who doesn’t love a good sub? (Or, in true Westchester-speak, a wedge). In Vietnamese culture, the sub equivalent is the bánh mi: a split baguette (introduced by the French during the Colonial period in Vietnam) filled with meats, aioli, cilantro, and pickled veggies such as carrots and daikon.

The newest county location to get one is at John Ly’s sandwich shop. Ly left his job as a mechanical engineer to pursue his passion for cooking, inspired by his father, who cooked holiday meals in the family’s one-bedroom Bronx apartment, as well as the dishes of his 100-year-old grandmother.

The 10-inch bánh mi come in varieties such as grilled pork belly, pickled papaya slaw, and sriracha aioli; panko-fried shrimp, buttered red cabbage, carrot slaw, and chipotle aioli; and The Barn Mi with lemongrass-marinated grilled chicken thighs, avocado, basil aioli, and pickled veggies.
