When it comes to Asian food Toronto has a serious variety. One of my favorites (although there are many) is Vietnamese Banh Mi buns.
Banh Mi sandwiches can be found all over the city whether in Asian grocery stores, restaurants or sandwich shop once place that I like going to is Banh Mi Boys. With 2 downtown locations (392 Queen St W. and 399 Yonge St) you can’t go wrong with these guys.
Last time I went there a couple weeks back I had the Five Spice Pork Belly Banh Mi. Full disclosure it isn’t the healthiest sandwich out there…by far…But it was a cheat day (Superbowl Sunday)so I indulged and was not let down! It was soooo good from first bite to last morsel. Every bite had some pork belly in it and was just a guilty pleasure!
You can’t tell me that doesn’t look fabulous! They also have tacos, steamed bao and salads in case banh mi isn’t your thing. One reason why I enjoy Banh Mi Boys, aside from the food, is the atmosphere because they are always playing good ol’ classic hip hop! I have been frequenting there for about 2 years now and I can’t recall a time where I was underwhelmed. Just looking at these pictures makes me want to head back over now.
If you haven’t already…check them out! Banh Mi Boys
