Kim's is a sandwich counter and restaurant specializing in Vietnamese sub sandwiches (banh mi).
Besides the Ba Le Sandwich shop down the block..I sometimes make a pit stop to this brother sister act...basically a sandwich counter with Golden Garden Vietnamese Restaurant...right next the CIBC bank on the corner. As step in, the counter is on the right side and the restaurant is straight head. The menu is kind of small...5 or 6 selections but I usually order the meatball or the ham pate version of the sub..mind you sometimes they run out of the meatballs banh mi!! You can pay cash or debit after your order or have a seat to the left until its done.
Anyways, the warmed up bread is nice and crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. Comes with the usually pickled carrot and diakon radish julienne, mayo, cilantro, optional sliced jalapeno peppers and a special vinaigrette dashs. Prices are cheap about $3.50 or $3.75 per sub..I think. Taste...mmmmmgood.
So, for a bit a quality come here. Thanks for reading.
Kim Saigon Sandwiches (vietnamese sandwiches) in Chinatown, are the best vietnamese sandwiches in the city.
I discovered this place from a segment i saw on a tv show many years ago; took a chance and dropped by, because, back then her sandwich counter shop was hidden, tucked away, located at the back of a grocery store, and, its location then was within eyeshot of GroundZero.
Well, she's done well for herself. No longer a sandwich counter at the back of a grocery store, but now Kim has her own location--sandwich counter service and restaurant--on Main & Pender. Location has improved, somewhat, but, I have to say, I don't particularly like going to that neighbourhood.
But, if you're ever in Chinatown and want a change from say, Subway, you got to try Kim Saigon Sandwiches. Cheap, too. $3.25 for a sandwich. Get the ham sandwich, the first one on the handwritten price list. She kept the aging old price list from her first location.
Oh, and Kim and her one employee (same lady I always see at the front counter section) always was their hands between cash transactions.
