Banh Mi 362

Based on the reviews, I was somewhat surprised after walking into Banh Mi 362. Their banh mi is highly praised, but the Subway style set-up was not expected.

The staff is friendly and English speaking. The display case features fresh vegetables.

Thit Nuong (Grilled Pork)

The Thit Nuong (Grilled Pork) (35,000 dong) banh mi comes with a thin slice of grilled pork with the juices still running out of it. Veggies include cucumbers, carrots, radish, cilantro and jalapenos. The bread has a nice thin super crunchy crust, and a soft chewy exterior.

Thit Do (Red Pork)

The Thit Do (Red Pork) (30,000 dong) is the type of pork you would normally find in a Chniese restaurant, known as char sui. The pork has a nice fat content, and a slightly sweet glaze. Again, the banh mi is loaded with fresh veggies and jalapenos.

The banh mi here aren’t your traditional type sandwiches. They’re very good and fresh. My only complaint is that they are a little lacking in the meat department. But it is worth a try if you’re in the area.
