Nowadays, Bánh mì is served with pate, mayonnaise, pickled vegetables, coriander, herbs, fresh chillies, some kinds of meat, egg, And most of the bread is available in many stalls on roadsides in Hoian.
Let see what travellers say about ” The Banh Mi Queen”
Our first meal for breakfast is Banh Mi. We visited Madame Khanh – The Banh Mi Queen, the best Banh Mi in Hoi An (for me, Banh Mi Phuong is like a tourist trap, especially when comparing with the quality and delicious level).
Madame Khanh is an over-80-year-old woman. The serving seemed quite slow but the reason was she did everything to ensure the quality of every single bunch of bread! She had several kinds of ingredients to put inside the Banh Mi, but the balance of tastes was so amazing. It made me want to move to Hoi An, then I can enjoy this delicious Banh Mi everyday T_T.
Runner-up for last meal. Never made it to the Anthony Bourdain recommended places. After reading the reviews that they were rude and charged different prices for foreigners, I scribbled down this address and made it my mission to try Madame Kahn, the ban mi queen. A small little place with indoor/ outdoor seating. Madame Kahn is the darling little old lady taking her time making the best food you might have ever tasted. Toasted buttery baguette, crispy veggies, spicy sauce, pate, egg, the works. It is heaven in a sandwich. We ate there twice. Each time we sat with other travellers. They had all eaten there several times, sometimes a few times a day. One dollar for the sandwich and one dollar for a cold Tiger beer or an iced coffee. Right in old town, do not miss it. I don’t think that it could ever be replicated sadly so enjoy.
