The original Kêu in Shoreditch is our favourite banh mi (Vietnamese sandwich) place in London, and their City shop on London Wall is just as good as the original. The classic sandwich with mortadella and terrine is our go-to, but you can’t really go wrong with whatever you choose. Their rice bowls are good, too, if a bit pricey. There’s always a queue at lunch, but it moves quickly.
