In a piece that'll almost certainly make you hungry, the New York Times Magazine zeroes in on Seattle's awesome Saigon Deli, saying it offers one of the "the best banh mi sandwich[es] in America." Calling the place---at 12th and Jackson in the International District---"a bit of a mess," the magazine adds that it's "the consensus pick" for banh mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) in the city.
A veritable indoor street market, Saigon Deli is a hot-lunch counter, bakery and dessert emporium all in one. It’s also a bit of a mess. The line quite literally goes out the door midday, and the parking situation is a disaster. But the sandwiches are second to none, especially the $3 banh mi dac biet — pork, ham and chicken liver pâté.

They also talk up sandwiches in Portland, New York, New Orleans (who knew?), Atlanta, and California.
