Vietnamese Foodies has added a new sandwich to its menu: made-to-order Bánh Mì, available in six flavours for both dine-in or delivery across Dubai.
Bánh Mì, which quite literally means ‘bread’ in Vietnamese, is a type of baguette with a thin, crispy crust on the outside, and soft, airy texture inside. It’s filled with various savory ingredients.
Vietnamese Foodies’ Bánh Mì is made using the very same process as it is Vietnam, with 24-hour proofed dough, baked daily and made-to-order with 6 types of delicious fillings, complemented with crisp vegetables, picked carrots, cucumber, and aromatic herbs. Among the fillings available in two sizes – 6 inch, starting at AED 21 and 12 inch, starting at AED 38 – are:
- Crispy breaded cream dory fish with a fresh Viet pesto sauce
- Grilled duck with fragrant hoisin sauce
- Vegan grilled portobello with barbeque sauce
- Lemongrass grilled chicken with special peanut sauce
- Lemongrass grilled beef tenderloin with pepper sauce
- Grilled beef meatballs with black pepper sauce
A daily Bánh Mì lunch special including the savoury sandwich and a rotating choice of appetisers will also be on offer for AED 57, until 3pm weekdays at both locations for dine-in.
The addition to Vietnamese Foodie’s menu marks a return of the dish after briefly being offered during the opening of Vietnamese Foodie’s original JLT location: “Despite being such a popular and widely enjoyed meal in Vietnam, making Bánh Mì is a bit of an art form,” says Lily Hoa Nguyen, Founder & Executive Chef of Vietnamese Foodies.
“The plan was always to serve Bánh Mì but we had to ensure that we had it just right. For us, that meant a lengthy process whereby our own Vietnamese pastry chefs ensured that our bread was absolutely authentic. We’re excited to reintroduce this little slice of Vietnamese culinary culture back on our menu and we know our customers are going to love it.”
Vietnamese Foodies Bánh Mì is available now at Vietnamese Foodies’ two locations in JLT (Cluster D) and Burj Vista (Downtown Dubai) and delivery to over 60 Dubai neighbourhoods.
