Jimmy’s Vietnamese Sandwich Bar has been in Fairhaven since 2012, but you’ll be forgiven if you haven’t seen it.
They post sandwich boards on the corner to call diners in, but without one of the prime spots on Harris or 12th St, it remains a hidden gem.
They serve Bánh mì that feature the heat from thai chillies, the fresh crunch from cilantro, cucumber, and carrots, and your choice of meat on a french baguette.
Owner Jimmy Nguyen moved to Bellingham from Vietnam when he was 14, and how he owns both the sandwich bar and the next-door spa that both bear his name.
Next time you’re in Fairhaven for lunch, give Jimmy’s a try.
