Pho Sandwich and more at Sunny & Annie’s – NYC
I’ve been to Sunny & Annie’s, a cramped Korean deli in the East Village, several times for sandwiches. They’re known for their pho sandwich, but I always went for the more typical sandwiches like an Italian hero or a BEC (bacon, egg & cheese). Because, really, how good could a pho sandwich from a deli possibly be? Well, I admit it when I’m wrong, because damn, the pho sandwich is really good, pho’ real.
Comprised of thin slices of roast beef, bean sprouts, basil, onion, cilantro, avocado, tomato, hoisin and Sriracha, it’s not authentic by any means, but it’s delicious. The beef is tender and thinly sliced, the avocado adds some creaminess, and there’s a slight heat from the Sriracha. It’s also only $8.99.
There are other varieties on the pho sandwich with chicken, pork or even bulgogi instead of roast beef, but I went with the classic.
The chicken parm sandwich ($8.99) with mozzarella and tomato sauce is decent too, but nothing special. Go with the pho and be done with it.

Pro Tip: Order the pho sandwich and don’t forget to get a pickle at the register.
