For who ? The sandwich lovers who wish to get out of the everlasting ham and butter
Cult dish? Banh mi Bohaî: hanger steak with sake and roasted pepper from Phú Quốc or Timut, relying on the arrival (€10).
There are locations we are usually cautious of: slightly too lovely, slightly too trendy, slightly too marketed… However at Miss Banh mi, go there together with your eyes closed. Earlier than settling down on this pedestrian district of Montorgueil, the graffiti artist Fafi and her good friend Hinda Tobni had dragged their touring caboose to all of the cool spots in France (late Nüba, Calvi On The Rocks, 10 years of Ed Banger…) Suffice to say that they’d time to interrupt of their idea.
Principally, banh mi is meat (normally beef), stuffed right into a crispy baguette, with grated carrot and coriander. Besides that right here, the Vietnamese dwich inherited from French colonization is totally revisited and upgraded: baguette from Kayser, do-it-yourself soy mayo, hen peppers, French meat, frozen zero… Additionally dearer, immediately, than within the bouis-bouis of the thirteenth.
Day-after-day, we discover the three iconic recipes: the Yummy (grilled eggplant with garlic and tofu marinated in lemongrass, €8.50), the Yellow (hen supreme with candied lemon, €9.50) and above all of the Bohaî, our favorite: flank steak with sake, seasoned with roasted pepper from Phú Quốc or Timut relying on the arrival (€10). To that is added a “particular of the day” which modifications each day of the week. Bonus for the large gourmands: the soup of the day as a starter (€5), and for dessert, the nice do-it-yourself darkish chocolate and sesame cookie (€3.50). Yum yum!
