You won’t find any ramen burgers or Vietnamese burritos at this campus-area food truck. But there is one culinary mashup that Nghia Tran does do, and boy does he do it well … Tran is from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and he makes a banh mi sandwich like nobody’s business. Since he opened his Nhu Lan Vietnamese Food Truck in February, he’s drawn a devoted following for his legendary Banh Mi Dac Biet, a soft baguette from La Baguette Parisienne bakery stuffed with three types of pork plus the quintessential Vietnamese garnish of cucumber, cilantro and jalapeño. Unfussy, yet incredibly fresh .. Did we mention it’s $3.50? Check Facebook for truck’s location, 520-342-8611
