Must Get: Hoisin Veal Meatball Sandwich

Potentially the best Asian sandwich shop I’ve tried. Potentially just because it’s overpriced for the size ($8 for a tiny sandwich that would not fill me up?? Pft!) and the staff could be a bit more welcoming. Their hoisin veal meatball sandwich which was simply mouth watering. The meat was tender, the sauce was tangy, the bread was perfectly crisp, and it had the right amount of veggies, especially cilantro. Although the sandwiches are made to order, it’s definitely no burger king– you can’t have it your way; so, if you are not a fan of mayo, don’t go to Num Pang. At least everything else you can pick out.

Early warning though– do NOT get the corn. It sounded like a great combination of some of my favorte things: corn, spice, and coconut… Unfortunately, it just did not go well together. Lesson learned.
