Flavors of Pampanga: Last Stop at Banh Mi Vietnamese Sandwich Eatery

I just found probably the best Vietnamese banh mi. And it's not in Manila...

Banh Mi Vietnamese Sandwich Eatery, located in Angeles City, Pampanga, is a surprising find, and the classic Banh Mi, Fresh Spring Rolls, and Pho Bo are definitely worth the drive from Manila. And that's what makes Pampanga so cool, with so many delicious finds and surprises...

The small yet cozy interiors of Banh Mi Vietnamese Sandwich Eatery has that nice laid back and cool vibe. And you just know dining at Banh Mi is one of those experiences that shouldn't be missed while in Angeles City. Banh Mi is definitely a worthy addition to Pampanga's rich culinary diversity.

The signature Vietnamese BBQ Pork Banh Mi (P 95), with smoky and tender grilled pork, sweet and tart pickled carrots, daikon, and fresh cilantro on a freshly baked baguette. Add some Sriracha, and you have a true Vietnamese classic.  

The fresh, crusty baguette is perfectly crisp, combining well with the pickled vegetables and fresh toppings, and before you know it, you're already halfway through your sandwich. Sweet, smoky, and savory, Banh Mi's sandwiches pack so much flavor in every bite. Seriously good.

Fresh Spring Rolls (P 99), with fresh vegetables, shrimps and noodles. The crisp vegetables and sweet peanut sauce combine for that distinct and authentic flavor. Fresh, clean flavors, and a great side dish to go with your sandwich.

And why not go all-out and order one of Banh Mi's signatiure pho? The classic Pho Bo (P 195), a hearty and comforting beef noodle soup served with fresh bean sprouts and cilantro. Banh Mi Vietnamese Sandwich Eatery also offers a range of Vietnamese coffee, including iced coffee to complete your experience.

Great food, great value, and some of the best and authentic Vietnamese flavors I've tried. And if you find yourself in Angeles City, include Banh Mi Vietnamese Sandwich Eatery  in your list of stops.
