Yes, apparently KP's Deli is closing...their lease was not renewed. Very sad news since the people there were so nice, and it's not easy to find a decent bahn mi in this neck of the woods.
Matt was already worried when they discontinued the beef jerky bahn mi, but this is really too bad.
After Thursday, you can try Soy Cafe, a bit further down Hyperion. They have lemongrass chicken and tofu bahn mi for around $5 -- not completely traditional, but pretty good.
Gingergrass also has bahn mi -- anyone tried them?
Or, you could be pioneering, and open a franchise of the yummy Baguette Express...please!
