Vegan banh mi
Ok, lets not mess around here, when you go to Nha Trang you MUST head straight to the ‘banh mi chay’ stall on Hung Vuong Street. We were in Nha Trang previously and didn’t know about this gem of vegan goodness but having followed JoJo of ‘Vegan in Brighton’ on her travels through Vietnam we just knew we had to visit because , as she says, “I fell in love with this sandwich and ate it for every single meal until I left”. It was good, really good; a delightful fresh baguette packed with a selection of mock meat, salad, picked vegetables, Vietnamese herbs and spicy dressing that hit the spot. During our short stay in town we honestly lost count of how many we ate but we were definitely well into double figures. At 10,000 VND each (30 pence or 45 cents) they are a bargain and rival our previous favourite vegan banh mi found in Hoi An from the shop that Anthony Bourdain said made “the best sandwich in the world” which was also pretty damn fine! Banh mi chay is situated opposite Mai Huy Hotel on Hung Vuong Street and is also listed on Happy Cow with a helpful map so you have no excuse not to visit (many times).
