Banh Mi 888 @ United Square

I was introduced to Banh Mi 888 by a Vietnamese friend from work, and Banh Mi 888 is truly authentic Vietnamese and affordable.  Some of their mains are under $6! “Banh Mi” means bread in Vietnamese but this dedicated team of Vietnamese serve more than just bread! They also serve all the Vietnamese specialties – Pho and Spring Rolls with all the authentic sauces that I have tasted in Ho Chi Minh!

Fresh Salad Rolls, 2 pieces ($5.80) – love the see-through wrap with prawns and fresh crunchy vegetables

Grilled Chicken Glass Noodle – Dry ($5.90) – highly recommend!

Chicken Pho ($7.50) – Pho a bit thicker than the ones in Vietnam, but otherwise, authentic tasting

One of us also tried the Beef Pho ($8.50) which had very sweet, peppery soup. I am amazed at how they created the tasty flavour without MSG.

They also provide a loyalty card where you get a free main with 10 chops (essentially 10% off) so I find this healthy meal has great value. Great lunch spot for those we work around the area as well!
