Where to go for hot Vietnamese takeaway right now?
It’s all about Banh Mih Bay. Recently opening their second outpost in Rathbone Place – Fitzrovia, the established Banh Mih Bay team offer reasonably-priced vietnamese delights in either baguette, curry, soup or salad formats. Perfect for lunch on the go.
As with any good Vietnamese, the key is fresh herbs. Banh Mih provides prepped coriander and basil for you to drop into your meal personally – couldn’t get much fresher than that! I opted for the spicy beef with rice. It had a nice kick, but nothing too eye-watering. For £6, it was an excellent lunchtime treat.
Other popular choices in our group were the shredded caramelised pork (Bahn Mi Bi) in a baguette (see photo) and the prawn Pho noodle soup.
The word is spreading fast – a sophisticated alternative to your Pret/Eat/M&S/Itzu’s of the world. I’m glad to see smaller businesses doing well and these guys more than deserve it. They are all super friendly and speedy. We’ll be going again soon for sure!
