Bánh mì (Vietnamese bread) is a famous street food in Vietnam. When travelling around Vietnam, you will find easy to encounter the image of Bánh mì stores. It is originated as a quick snack in the morning for students and employees because of affordable prices. Today bánh mì is brought not only to breakfast but also to different times of the day.
According to Australia's prestigious travel website in 2017, along with many other sandwiches, bánh mì is highly loved by tourists and is named in the 10 best sandwiches rankings all over the world.
In Ho Chi Minh City, there are many bánh mì shops for you to choose. In this article I would like to introduce about one of the most popular bánh mì shops located in the heart of District 1.
This is one of the bánh mì carts that I usually buy in the morning, located at the crossroad of Le Lai and Nguyen Thi Nghia, on the side of KFC 78 Le Lai street, District 1. At 6:00 AM, they start preparing to sell. Although this store is quite simple, but attracted a lot of customers. Target customers include the office staffs who work nearby, the tourists passing by, travelers passing by. The store open from Monday to Saturday, and close at around 10:00 AM.
Although the store is located in the heart of the city, the price of each loaf of bread is very affordable, only about 12000 to 13000 VND. Prices are listed and public so visitors don’t worry about being overcharged. In addition to barbecue pork sandwich, they also sell shredded pork sandwich (shredded pork or pork skin, doused with fish sauce), minced pork meatball sandwich (smashed pork meatballs), sardine sandwich, fried egg sandwich (contains fried eggs with onions, sprinkled with soy sauce, sometimes buttered).
Making me love this bánh mì flavors here is the sauce which is sweet and sour, accompanied with pickles, extremely good taste, and I would never be bored with this food. In addition, bánh mì is a combination between the crunchy crust and soft inner. Another thing is that the saleswoman is also very nice and friendly.
So, if you come to Ho Chi Minh City, don’t forget to visit and try this street food.
Hopefully this information will be useful to everyone. Wish you have a great experience when coming to my home country.
