The menu is simple, and Sakron says they plan to keep it that way. Diners can choose between three bases: bánh mê ($8.50), salad ($8.50), or tacos (1/$3.75, 2/$7, $3/$10). Then you can pick a “fillin’”: red curry beef short rib, country pate and Vietnamese ham, egg and Canadian bacon, five spice pork, five spice tofu, and ginger lemongrass chicken.
On a recent visit, we tried the short rib and chicken bành mís, and we were impressed with the crusty bread (baked by a local supplier) and the generous, fresh toppings (cucumber, pickled carrots and Daikon radish, cilantro, holy basil, crispy shallots, chile-mayo). The City Paper’s resident bành mí aficionados approve, touting the short rib option as the best of the bunch. Craft beer and wine are also available.
They offer pick-up, delivery, and dine-in options and are open for lunch and dinner (closed Mondays). Find out more at bonbanhmi.com.
