Ben Daitz and Ratha Chaupoly, owners of the delectable Num Pang sandwich empire, have managed an impressive feat: opening seven (and soon to be eight) locations since first debuting in 2009. The duo are expanding their downtown presence with two new Financial District locations, the first of which is opening at 75 Broad Street at South William. Perhaps this will help thin the herd at the nearby Chipotle.
Many of the tasty Cambodian-inspired sandwiches from other locations—like the cravy-worthy Five Spice Glazed Pork Belly—will be at the new shop, but they're also doing a seasonal special to celebrate the opening. The Hoisin BBQ Pulled Turkey Pang ($8.50) features slow-roasted turkey tossed in a spicy hoisin BBQ sauce then topped with ginger-peppercorn pickled cranberries, chili mayo, cilantro, and a crunchy combo of pickled carrots and cucumber. Put your Thanksgiving leftovers on notice.
The shop won't officially begin service until Tuesday, but from noon to 2 p.m. on Monday they're offering $5 versions of the Hoisin BBQ Pulled Turkey sandwich, plus the Peppercorn Catfish with sweet soy sauce and Roasted Cauliflower with Chinese and Thai eggplant spread.
