The long awaited Hanco’s Vietnamese sandwiches opened its doors this past Saturday to the delight of local foodies. From the looks of it, they are keeping up to the quality of their Carroll Garden’s predecessor. From Brooklynian:

We just got back from there. I had the chicken sandwich and it was fantastic, really tasty. I ordered the medium spicy – they assume you want spicy – and it was just spicy enough. I had a bit of a wait for the sandwich, but I expected that on their first day. The bubble tea was also delicious. Overall, a nice addition to the neighborhood.

Seems like the prices at the new Hanco’s in slightly higher but we have a feeling that will not deter anyone in need of their Banh Mi fix.

    Slightly higher is not quite the right description. Seven dollars? I know rent is high but they are out of their minds.

    SW corner of 7th Ave at 10th or 11th street, I forget which.

    I tried to get some sammies last night but I think they close at like 7pm on Sunday – at least nobody picked up the phone when I tried calling. Someone needs to tell them that not everyone has dinner at 5pm!

    They are excellent! One of the best new places to open in Boerum Hill in years. And the Park Slope location will be similarly welcomed.

    $7.25 might seem a tad high, but maybe they are testing the waters for that area. When they opened the Bergen Street location they went through some menu/price changes in the first few months as well since their menus were marked up by hand.

    I was psyched to see that they were open in Park Slope, but much less psyched by the prices. $7 for the same sandwich that’s $5.25 on Bergen Street?

    In fact, even factoring in roundtrip subway fare to Saigon Banh Mi on Mott Street, I could get a sandwich about double the size for just 75 cents more.
