Nicky’s Vietnamese Sandwiches

Nickys Vietnamese Sandwich

Nickys Vietnamese Sandwiches in 10009

Having just gulped down a ‘classic vietnamese sandwich’ from Nicky’s Vietnamese Sandwiches in New York City’s East Village, I can honestly say this is one of new favorite takeout spots in the neighborhood.

A friend suggested I check out the little ‘hole in the wall’ restaurant on 2nd Street between Avenue A and Avenue B for its tasty, fresh sandwich-ian delicacies. I went for the ‘classic’ which contains pate (how francais), vietnamese ham, roasted ground pork, pickled carrots, cucumber, cilantro and mayo on a toasted baguette (actually, it’s a roll).

Classic Vietnamese Sandwich

I really liked the chunky consistency as well as the spicy sauce that soaks the sandwich. Also, the meat -which is chopped into small, bite-sized pieces- combined with the overflowing vegetable contents makes me feel as if mom would approve, too: “Don’t forget your vegetables… HEY I’M TALKING TO YOU!”

If you want to ‘eat in’ at Nicky’s Vietnamese Sandwich restaurant, there are three or four little tables to accommodate you as well as a bench just outside the front window.

On top of all this good news, my classic vietnamese sandwich checked in at a very reasonable $3.95 – WITH TAX! Now, that’s a deal.

This East Village blog gives Nicky’s Vietnamese Sandwiches 4 out of 5 fire hydrants.

    MMM now I am so hungry! Love all the blogs about sushi. I want to call in take out!
    Funny thing, a friend was in from out of town, and we sat down and ate at a sushi place I only carry-out from. I ordered the same roll I always do, but I was surprised when it arrived because of the elaborate presentation. It even made it taste better than usual.

    That’s what I’m talking about.. GOOD sushi takeout is a tough item to find… it’s just not the same as in the restaurant but i still order in. I’m on a quest to find the best sushi takeout i can in the neighborhood. so far, it’s avenue A.. which is over on avenue a. I like nicky’s sandwich, too. A great lunch takeout item.
