Yesterday, a sign was posted on the windows of less-than-a-month-old Hanco's in Park Slope: "Effective today, all sandwiches are $6.50."
Originally, they were $7 but said too many people were complaining. "We want to say here, so we needed to listen to our customers." The sister branch in Boreum Hill still sells what seems to be the same sandwiches for $5.25.
Then there's Ba Xuyen in Borough Park, where no banh mi is over $4. How much would you spend for the Vietnamese sandwich?
