Updated: 21 June 2018
The bánh mì sandwich is one of Vietnam’s greatest culinary exports, and no place does it better than its home town of Ho Chi Minh City. There are thousands of options in this city, from humble food carts to high-end restaurants, but here are the ten best spots to enjoy an amazing bánh mì.

Bánh Mì Huỳnh Hoa

You should expect a line when you arrive at this place, as it’s one of the most famous bánh mì spots in a city with thousands of them – and when you see their sandwiches, you’ll understand why. You’ll never see a bánh mì so full of amazing ingredients. The meat slices are thick, the bread is large and flaky, and the veggies are flavored to perfection. If you only have time to try one bánh mì restaurant, this is it.

Bánh Mì Tuấn Mập

Restaurant, Vietnamese
Save to wishlist
Look for the yellow food cart out on the sidewalk, packed with heaps of fresh ingredients for the crowds of repeat customers to fawn over as they wait for their favorite dish. They serve the typical bánh mì—a take-away style baguette sandwich, with your choice of fillings—but for a different, more traditional take, try their sizzling hot plate. It’s how the bánh mì first started in Vietnam.

This food cart may by unassuming, but don’t let that distract you from the the delicious bánh mì sandwiches made here.

Bánh Mì 37 Nguyễn Trãi

Restaurant, Food Stand, Vietnamese
Save to wishlist
If you’re a meat eater, you have to try the grilled pork bánh mì at this spot. They grill the little meat patties next to the food cart, and the smell is enough to have you salivating as you watch them shovel ingredients into your baguette. This place is only open for dinner, though, so don’t show up expecting breakfast.

Tiny plastic chairs and a delicious bánh mì go together oh so well. Bánh Mì Hòa Mã is the kind of place where you can sit and enjoy the care that went into selecting and preparing your meal.

Bánh mì cụ lý

Restaurant, Vietnamese
Save to wishlist
You’ll have to wake up early if you want to try this place, because they finish serving just after 9 a.m. – but you’ll be glad you did. There’s often a crowd here, waiting for some of the thickest cuts of meat you’ll ever see on a bánh mì sandwich. You might be surprised by how low-key this place is, but don’t let that put you off. They make a fantastic bánh mì.
