Delicious Banh Mi in Saigon

RATING: ★★☆☆ - GOOD   |   PRICE: $ - Inexpensive

In an unassuming corner off Nguyễn Trãi in Ho Chi Minh City lies Banh Mi 37 Nguyen Trai, a small Banh Mi push cart, with an international following and snaking lines of hungry customers.

For the uninitiated, a Banh Mi is a Vietnamese French-baguette sandwich usually filled with cold cuts, offal and a variety of fresh and pickled vegetable. But Banh Mi 37’s sandwiches are quite different from run-of-the-mill variations. Specializing in banh mi Nem Nướng, they are stuffed with grilled pork patties, luxurious sticky brown gravy, and freshly cut chunks of cucumber. They have a crisp bite, succulent meat and the sauce is cloys to your mouth leaving you craving for more. 

It is not just the excellent sandwiches which cause the locals to keep returning for more. Priced happily at 17000VND, the sandwiches are cheap as chips and it is not rare to see customers ordering 15-20 portions to-go. 

Located hidden just off the main road and behind a bunch of other street vendors. The cart usually gets set up around 4:00pm and they sell until they run out of bread, meat or both. 

Located just behind these other carts - follow the smells to deliciousness.

Street food might not be for the faint-hearted, however we are confident that with Banh Mi 37’s high turnover and unsurpassed reputation would keep your stomach a happy and healthy camper throughout the rest of your journey.
