If you’ve ever visited Vietnam, you have definitely tasted this snack sandwich from either street side vendors or in local bistros. Banh Mi is considered to be a staple dish in Vietnam, but the sandwich itself has been devoured in countries in the western hemisphere as well. The popularity of this dish was mainly propagated through the inflow of Vietnamese refugees in the US after the Vietnam War. Ever since, the dish has been the source of culinary wonder globally and has attained significant attention in the US.
Nearly every city living inside the borders of North America has their own Banh Mi-dedicated Vietnamese restaurant. From New York to Washington DC and now Tucson Arizona, Banh Mi has been steadily adapted into the Western culture from its original Asian roots.
However, the most popular place to eat Banh Mi is through small food trucks hanging around the corners of busy streets. With bright paint and colourful van designs, cheery staff and enthusiastic sellers and streets packed with people, the warm and juicy Banh Mi is devoured with great passion and longing by scores of people.
Now you do not have to head to vietnam or major citys to try a Banh mi! Banhdicted 1st dedicated Banh Mi specialty restaurant to Tucson!
Finally!!! This is the most authentic Banh Mi that I have had in Tucson. I am super stoked! They also serve variety of drinks, including Boba drinks and Vietnamese coffee. I just has water with my sandwich and the water tasted so clean. Also, the people that work there are so nice! Do yourself a favor and go there. If you love Banh Mi you will not be disappointed.
I feel so happy to welcome a restaurant that elevates Tucson & Oro Valley!
The banh mi is really delicious and packed with flavor. The veggies are crisp and clearly fresh as can be, and the bread tasted freshly baked as well. Overall, I can't wait to come back for another!
The boba was perfect, and I don't say that too often. The house milk tea had a lovely flavor and was not too sweet. The custard was tasty and, I believe, had a light almond flavor which paired well with the milk tea; subtly sweet and smooth texture, the tea, the milk, and the custard made for a wonderful first time experience.
Saw on Facebook they opened this weekend. Stopped in for takeout. They offer coffees, milk tea, boba, smoothies and juices. Their banh mi menu is small, but good so I didn't need to have a dilemma about what to choose AZ special banh mi and lemongrass beef banh mi is what we got. They will customize as needed as well. Sandwiches were good with fresh flavors. Maybe just a bit more meat on the beef, since I tasted mostly bread and veggies. My teenager likes the mango milk tea with egg custard, said it was light and refreshing. Great pricing on the sandwiches.
Think we will need to comeback and try the coffees
