Update August 14: The Charleston City Paper stopped by for a quick visit and, spoiler alert, they dug it — check out Erica Jackson Curran's few words and pics over here.

Update August 3: Today is Bon Banh Mi's first day in business.

What's not to love about this sandwich description? "Toasted baguette, cucumber, pickled carrots, pickled daikon radish, cilantro, holy basil, crispy shallots, chile-mayonnaise."

They're at 162 Spring Street and are open from 11 to 11 on Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Score their menu here and I'd watch for specials on Facebook.

They're delivering to nearby areas, too: 843-414-7320.

No doubt we'll be dropping by soon, but if you beat us to it, let us know your thoughts or hook us up with some shots and we'll give you a shout out:

First reporting: If you're tired of waiting for Wednesdays or the to chow down on Butcher & Bee's banh mi sandwiches, you're in luck.

Charleston City Paper reports that a new banh mi shop (run by the Street Hero guys who make a phenomenal bahn mi every Saturday at the Charleston Farmers Market in Marion Square) will be opening in the spot on Spring Street that used to house The Remedy Market.

Update June 29: The Vietnamese sandwich bar opening on Spring Street offically has a name: Bon Banh Mi.

In addition to a name, the restaurant also has a Facebook page and Twitter feed, so you can even more anxiously await the shop's grand opening!

Unfortunately, the exact date on when the doors will open is still a mystery. To tide you over - or possible tease you more - here's a peek at what the menu will offer (as found on Facebook):

Bon Banh Mi proudly offers fresh made to order sandwiches (banh mi), tacos, salads, and rice bowls; all of which draw on the bold/complex flavors of Vietnam. Our menu combines a handful of locally sourced ingredients as well as hormone and antibiotic free meats. Our goal is to offer you a healthy, responsibly sourced meal at a fair price.
