If you know anything about Vietnamese sandwiches, then you already know about Cam Huong Deli on International. It’s a gem in the Eastlake Neighborhood. They have all the traditional Vietnamese deserts and dishes. But their specialty is the Vietnamese Sandwich, they have a variety of meats, a vegetarian sandwich, even a curry tofu sandwich. All ranging from $2.50 to $2.75.
The sandwiches are extremely tasty. They consist of freshly baked bread, white and orange carrots blanched in a white vinegar and sugar sauce, cucumbers, jalapenos, a little bit of mayo, and topped off with some salt and pepper.
The family has been a staple in Oakland for the past decade they own the Cam Huong deli, Cam Huong bakery in Chinatown, and Sierra Deli on 3rd street.
It’s filling sandwich at a great cost.
