BANH MI SAIGON THE NEW KING OF VIETNAMESE SUB SANDWICH IN SOUTH VANCOUVER - GUTOM FOOD REVIEW

Banh Mi Saigon on Victoria Drive in South Vancouver is the latest in many Vietnamese sub sandwich shops popping up all over the city.

This shop however is a little more polished in appearance than the usual family owned business. The restaurant is clean, with open space to view the sandwich artists hard at work. The ingredients are front and centre. FRESH is what the owners want to show customers as soon as they enter. The branding is clear, and there are bread baking ovens revolving.

There is a small seating area, but when this place gets busy at lunchtime expect to stand. Each sandwich is made once ordered, so there is a short wait to get your food.

Price
The days of $3.50 Banh Mi are over in Vancouver. Expect to spend $4 - $5 per sandwich. Average these days.



What We Ordered
#1 - Special Dac Biet $5
ham, cheese, meat ball, meat loaf, pate
mayo, soy, veggies.

Stuffed full of filling, and good portion size.
 The bread is not too soft, or overly flakey.

VALUE: $4 - $5 sandwiches. Good portion size.
QUALITY: Good, fresh, deli meats, bread, veggies.
SERVICE: Fast. A short wait during peak times.
Limited seating. CASH ONLY.

CASH ONLY
This business only accepts Cash
at the time of this video.

Address:
5397 Victoria Dr,
Vancouver, BC V5P 3V6

Overall this is one of the best Banh Mi shops in Vancouver. Worth multiple visits!
