Update: After being open a couple of months Banh Mi Boys closed for renovations this winter. They have reopened and I have the a new post including the new, expanded Banh Mi Boys menu.
Yesterday, the Grid published a good read from Karon Liu about Banh Mi Boys, the sandwich spot that has opened at Queen and Spadina.
I’ve been in twice and tried almost all of the (delicious) menu. Highlights were the 5-spice pork belly banh mi, and the beef balbi and pulled pork tacos. Since the pork shoulder for the pulled pork is actually smoked in house (and therefore not the usual braised, saucy mash) it’s particularly worth a shot.
Karon’s got the full details on the proprietor-brothers background, motivation, and plans for renovation and a grand opening in the new year. Head over to his story.
