The Citywide Banh Mi Takeover Continues

Nope, it’s not just pizza and burger places dominating our local culinary scene: banh mi is quickly proving to be the “it” sandwich of 2011. Not too long ago, Eater announced the closure of 33-year-old Indonesian Java Restaurant in the Inner Richmond (the owner reportedly retired). Now open in its place is ~CAFE BUNN MI~, not to be confused with the recently opened Bun Mee on Fillmore. Yelp comments sound rather positive (for a change), mentioning a duck banh mi, pho, rice plates, and super-nice owners. 417 Clement St. at 6th Ave., 415-668-8908.
