West Nashville

Banh Mi Xa Xiu at VN Pho & Deli — $3.50

A powerhouse of flavor comes out of this tiny, family-run kitchen-café, not the least of which is the banh mi xa xiu, a version of a barbecue pork belly sandwich. With fragrant tastes of anise, ginger, and cinnamon, the red-cooked pork belly would be luscious on its own. But, combined with sliced cucumber, green chilis, cilantro, pickled carrots, and daikon, all encased in a crackly baguette spread with house-made butter, you’ve got a sublime sandwich: vibrant and refreshing in every bite. 5906 Charlotte Pk., Ste. C, 615-356-5995
