It's always exciting to see a new business open along our vibrant merchant corridor and the new Banh Mi spot has been generating a lot of hyper-local buzz.
Banh Mi Viet located at 518 Divisadero, in a former beauty salon, offers both banh mi sandwiches and a couple of Vietnamese entrees as well.
The shop has a concise menu for takeout, with five banh mi options ranging from $8 to $10: dac biet (cold cuts), chicken, beef, tofu, or fish cake.
There are also chicken, shrimp, or tofu spring rolls ($6), as well as a beef and vermicelli noodle entree and a chicken entree. Banh Mi Viet also offers Vietnamese coffee, tea, cold brew, and pressed juice.
Banh Mi Viet is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. There does not appear to be any delivery option yet available by third-party apps buy hey- we should be doing our best to support local businesses directly anyway!
