Our search for the best banh mi in Vietnam ended at Hoi An’s Banh Mi Phuong. Watch our video to see why we fell in love with the number 9 sandwich and why we ate it four days in a row.
During our three weeks of foodtripping in Hanoi, we kept looking for a great banh mi, but, alas, we never found one. Ironically, we found the best banh mi in Vietnam at Banh Mi Phuong on our second day in Hoi An, the charming, touristy city in the center of the country.
Starting with baguettes that would make a French chef proud, the industrious sandwich makers at Banh Mi Phuong work in harmony to build the best possible banh mi for each customer. Herbs are fresh, and condiments are flavorful. By our fourth visit, we were arguably regulars. We realized this when the server knew our order (numbers eight and nine) before we said it out loud. For self-proclaimed sandwich experts, this was a victory that deserved a celebratory beer.
If you don’t believe us, then ask the motley crew patiently waiting for their sandwiches in front of the restaurant at all times of day and night. Young, old, male, female – all share our banh mi love.
Have we convinced you yet? Either way, watch our video to see us eat the best banh mi in Vietnam.
