Hanoi Banh Mi - an iconic street food delicacy.



Hanoi Banh Mi - a renowned dish of Vietnam within the global culinary scene.

Alongside Hanoi Pho, Hanoi Banh Mi has long been famous in the world of cuisine, to the extent that it's often affectionately referred to simply as "Banh mi" instead of Vietnamese baguette or Vietnamese sandwich. This alone reflects the respect and high regard from international culinary connoisseurs for Vietnam's humble Banh Mi dish.

The golden, crispy, freshly-baked baguettes, accompanied by a diverse range of fillings such as grilled meat, pate, Vietnamese sausage, raw vegetables, pickles, mayonnaise, and chili sauce, have become a distinctive flavor closely associated with the people of Hanoi. Additionally, Hanoi Banh Mi comes in many different versions, from egg omelet Banh Mi, pate and sausage Banh Mi, to fish ball Banh Mi, each with its own unique flavor suitable for different preferences and tastes. This distinctive flavor has been preserved through generations and has become an integral part of street food culture.

Travelers passionate about traditional Banh Mi

For travelers, enjoying Hanoi Banh Mi is not just about savoring delicious flavors but also an opportunity to explore and experience the culinary culture of Vietnam. Appreciating the delicate flavors and immersing oneself in the bustling life of traditional Banh Mi stalls is an unforgettable experience.

CNN Travel previously included Vietnamese Banh Mi in the list of the 24 best sandwiches in the world in 2023. According to the website, Banh Mi can be easily found at street food stalls and food carts everywhere. "Banh Mi is not only a common breakfast, lunch, and dinner for Vietnamese people but also well-known and loved by many foreign tourists," CNN reported. Hanoi Banh Mi is not just a dish but also a gateway for travelers to explore and gain a deeper understanding of Vietnam's distinctive culinary culture.

The longstanding Hanoi Banh Mi selling points.


Banh Mi Mrs Nga - 03 Ta Hien Street

Mrs. Nga's Banh Mi is the liveliest and most bustling spot on Ta Hien Street every morning. Her method of making Banh Mi here is also quite unique. Instead of pre-filling the Banh Mi with ingredients, she fries the entire mixture of meat, pate, and sausage in a pan with lard, then pours it onto a plate, adding a fried egg on top as well. Customers can then customize their Banh Mi with condiments like soy sauce and chili sauce to suit their personal taste.

Hang Gai Banh Mi - corner of Hang Gai and To Tich Streets.​

This Banh Mi stall opens very early at 5 a.m. and typically closes around 10 a.m. as they often sell out quickly. This alone reflects the deliciousness and popularity of this establishment. By 7 a.m., as you pass by the corner of Hang Gai and To Tich Streets, you'll already see a bustling line of customers waiting to buy Banh Mi. Each Banh Mi is generously stuffed with pate, meat, shredded pork, sausage, and butter, yet it's priced at only 10,000 Vietnamese dong. That's incredibly cheap for a quality 

Mrs. Dan's Banh Mi - 34 Lo Su Street.​

This Banh Mi stall can be considered one of the oldest in the Old Quarter as it has been open since 1979. They offer a variety of Banh Mi types such as stuffed Banh Mi, pan-fried Banh Mi, and Banh Mi with wine sauce, available all day for those who love traditional street food. The distinctive feature of this stall is its fragrant and soft pate, which is incredibly enticing. You can also order various drinks like soy milk or corn milk to make your meal more nutritious.

Hanoi Banh Mi is not just a simple street food but also a symbol of culinary culture and ingredient diversity. Blending history and modernity, Hanoi Banh Mi has become an iconic dish that cannot be missed for those who love the diverse street food culture of Vietnam.
