Which is more important to the bahn mi, really great bread or really great filling? For those who answer “bread,” Quoc Bao Bakery awaits. This isn’t exactly surprising, given that Quoc Bao is a genuine working bakery which happens to sell sandwiches. Quoc Bao’s bread is like none other, with cracks that run both along the top and across. A loaf here looks like a cubist painting of bread. And the crust is ultracrisp, its little pieces shattering off oh-so-satisfyingly between the teeth. Quoc Bao offers 14 varieties of sandwich, sticking to varieties of pork, barbecued meat and an extensive list of combos. As a bakery, Quoc Bao is ready to provide treats like gigantic muffins or soft, subtle, not-too-sweet coconut macaroons.
