Vietnamese Street Eats: Wan Chai is giving a warm welcome to casual Vietnamese cafe Cơm Bánh Mì, which promises Hoi An street food at (not quite but almost) street food prices.
Look & Feel: Cơm Bánh Mì is throwing it back to old-school Vietnam with a trendy take on a traditional Hoi An village house.
On the Menu: It’s Hong Kong meets Hoi An — alongside signature banh mi sandwiches ($55-95) and com ga chicken rice rolls ($65), Cơm Bánh Mì incorporates some Hong Kong-style barbecue and roast duck. There are also a few cheeky-sounding smoothies like the “Sucky Sucky”, which um… we hear are made with fresh fruits like coconut, durian, avocado and mango.
Great For: Late-night bites, quick lunches, big fat sandwich cravings.
FYI: The banh mi might sound traditional, but they’re actually stuffed with your choice of fillings, including Iberico ham from Spain.
