Deanslist, thanks for the comments. Yes, some will definitely think We Suki Suki's chicken in particular is over-seasoned vs most other banh mi - the maggi/soy sauce and sriracha are both very present (not so on the dac biet). I didn't feel that the spice/flavor threw things out of balance, though.
As for time to prep sandwiches, We Suki Suki does it right in front of you, and it's clear they are making to order, so I'll forgive them being a bit slow out of the gate (and, yes, think they will speed up over time as they learn). Quoc Huong (or Lee's - which I also really like, Kuduzguy) can be faster, but I've also been to Quoc Huong or Lee's when they were slammed and it took up to 10 minutes to get my sandwiches simply because there was a long list of people with orders in ahead of me.
I'm a huge fan of Lee's Bakery version of this sandwich. Maybe I need to expand my horizons.
Overseasoning with an excessive use of mayo, Sriracha and maggi seasoning almost defeats the delicate balance of the banh mi. While it doesn't go so far as to ruin it and offers a bit of a kick, I prefer a little more balance and more fresh jalapeños.
I say while the location justifies the price increase and markup, I was unimpressed by the service and amount of time it takes to make a sandwich. On Buford Hwy sandwiches are knocked out in anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. We Suki Suki takes much much longer, causing long lines and wait times of up to 30 minutes.
Don't get me wrong, I am THRILLED about the availability of quality ethnic food away from Buford Hwy. I hope they do well and build a huge following. But I also hope they get their sh*t together and learn how to assemble a banh mi much faster.
I just wanted to let you know that we are always happy to do a coconut cream pie with meringue instead of whipped cream because some people do prefer it that way like yourself. We just need 24 hours notice.

I'm a stickler for details and to me, a properly made coconut cream pie must have a big fluffy toasted meringue, not whipped cream. Whipped cream is a quick, and to me, unacceptable substitute.
Bugs, true, but a whole pie could feed quite a few. Slices are $4.60, and generously portioned savory pot pies and hand pies are $5-$7. That fits "Cheap Eats."
$32 for a pie is not Cheap Eats!
As a pie afficianado living in Panama City Beach, dropping in at the Buckhead Pie Shop is just an occasional treat. That's why we tell our Atlanta friends that the price of admission to our PCB guest room is a Pie Shop pie. So far, so good...better than good, DELICIOUS!
This place sounds amazing....Cant wait to come back home and try it
wonderful food, fantastic vegetables. We eat there regularly
I went this past weekend to Fuoco and it was delicious. Good ratio of ingredients, great dough and you were actually able to pick it up without all of the ingredients falling off.
What's the latest with Enrico - still out? Back? trying to figure out my Bday dinner this evening. Fuco or Antico?
I just started dating this place. I think it's gonna work out.
My wife and I went there last night. Nice place, good atmosphere, but we both rated the food as just decent and the service as lousy. We sat at the bar, which usually means quick, attentive service, but once we were finally able to order and then received our food, were pretty much ignored. Too bad for the bartender because it cost him my usual fat tip.
After reading this article I had to go visit -- I wasn't aware it had reopened. We went for breakfast on Saturday and it was great. The biscuit sandwiches were impressive and the people working there were nice folks.
I also was really impressed with the grocery selection and how they've managed to get so much in that tiny space. We ended up doing some shopping while we were there.
These small neighborhood grocery stores that have been popping up in recent years are so cool and Little's is definitely one of the best of the bunch. It's not so much a high-end, foodie selection here (like at Savi) but more along the lines of a condensed Candler Park Market.
Every neighborhood should have a Little's. Love it.
Love this store! Let's do a fund raiser to help Brad replace the window on th
e north side of the store like in the"olden days"!
Keep it up, Littles!
Brad's done a stellar job of reinvigorating Little's store. The place has a super-friendly neighborhood vibe, from the employees and the fellow patrons both. I always feel like I'm being transported back to an earlier time when I sit at that crowded lunch counter. The food's damn good, and cheap too. Plus, now I have a place to buy beer in walking distance.
Thanks, Brad. I never knew the old Little's, but the new one is fantastic. The neighborhood is fortunate to have you. For those of you outside of Cabbagetown, come check it out. But leave your bad attitude at home.
Saying the c-word says a lot about you.
One of my best friends used to live in Cabbagetown and I always loved the neighborhood. I need to check out the place.
also, cunt, when you use the terms yuppie and hipster disparagingly it reveals a lot about your socio-economic status. just sayin.
