Restaurant Review: Joju (Elmhurst, NY)

Official site:

The first time I had Joju was from a left over half sandwich in my friends fridge. I don’t know if it was the hunger, but it was damn good. After a visit to Joju’s Elmhurst location, I now know it wasn’t hunger. The sandwiches at Joju are damn good.

With that said, it is just a Vietnamese sandwich. There are many places strewn across the city who make comparable Vietnamese sandwiches. So what differentiates this place from others? A few additional options really. Also the price is fantastic as it’s about six dollars for a full sandwich (not half sandwich). This includes sandwiches like pork belly. It was so cheap I thought I was paying for a half sandwich.

As for these additional options, they have your standard ham and head cheese that you can get anywhere. They also have bulgogi, bbq pork, and pork belly (my personal favorite). There are also specialty fries (kim chi and banh mi) but after trying them, they aren’t extraordinary. Just some fries that taste like the sandwiches. The also have other appetizers and chicken wings (which were really over breaded). Ultimately, the sandwiches are the only thing here that are worth buying in my opinion.

Score: 6.7/10 Great place. The prices are great. Worth a visit.
