When I went to Pho Nomenon in January 2014, I was not that thrilled and even said:

I have mixed feelings about that place: it was cheap and decent, but the food was not to the point where I would want to go back quickly.

What convinced me to go back was their Banh Mi sandwich. I love a good banh mi that I discovered at Banh Mi Saigon in Little Italy few years back. Cheap and tasty, I love the sweet and savory taste of this sandwich, that is even better when the baguette has a slight crispiness. So, the fact that Pho Nomenon was serving one and, in fact, the only place in Hoboken serving it, made us decide to go back there. 

Jodi ordered the tofu sandwich that was made with fried tofu:

On my side, I got the traditional, made with cold cuts and some sort of mayonnaise.

Both sandwiches had cucumber, carrot, daikon and fresh cilantro, on a bread that was slightly toasted. These sandwiches were pretty good and I definitely recommend them, but know that they have limited quantity there. 

With my sandwich, I got a Thai iced tea, not surprising if you follow this blog as it is one of my favorite beverage.

This time at Pho Nomenon, I was definitely not disappointed! The Banh Mi were awesome and I would definitely go back there to try their other choices!

Enjoy (I did)!
