From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. this Sunday, Nov. 18, marks the last day customers can purchase Hanoi hoagies outside 2216 Penn Ave.

Ms. Nguyen’s banh mi features chicken or pork stuffed into a crusty roll, layered with pickled carrots, onions, cucumbers, hot peppers and cilantro garnish. 
 
To mark a special occasion, Ms. Nguyen will also sell bowls of pho as well as Mason jars of her secret sauce to tide over fans while she is away.
