There’s nothing new under the sun, only variations. El Bulli, NOMA, Javier Plascencia or Davin Waite, they are all, at most, new forms or old flavors offered in new ways. In other words, they are variations. And that is what Baguette Brothers (4896 Convoy St.) in the Convoy District is all about: variations on a theme, in this case, banh mi.
My first nomination for the coveted title of “CityBeat World Fare Best Sandwich on the Planet” was the banh mi at Cali Baguette Express, specifically the No. 1 Cali Special. It was a great sandwich and a classic example of the banh mi arts. Go further into its menu—or, for that matter, that of just about any banh mi joint—and what you find are the usual suspects: BBQ pork, pate, etc. Their menus are mostly the same.
Enter Baguette Brothers. Read more at http://sdcitybeat.com/article-17076-Variations-on-a-theme-at-Baguette-Brothers.html
