This joint has the distinction of serving the only non-Chinese food in Golden Shopping Mall. It's not, however, a total misfit: the owner is Chinese man who did a stint in Vietnam. I gave his beef banh mi a try—the meat was an interesting pick of braised short rib, topped by a finger of cucumber, plenty of mayo, and the usual tangle of pickled carrot and daikon.
