The birth place of banh mi, a Vietnamese French baguette, is in the coastal ancient town of Hoi An. Many have claimed, including Anthony Bourdain, that the best banh mi in Vietnam is found at Bánh Mì Phượng. There is a total of 12 choices on the menu and a constant stream of customers. Everyone has bought into the hype, us included. This was the first banh mi we had in Vietnam and it tasted better than ones we’ve had anywhere else in the world. The bread itself is crispy on the outside, and soft and airy inside. The success of the shop is a result of Madam Phuong getting up at 3am every morning and preparing all the ingredients with her staff (who are her relatives). She sells around 2,000 loafs of bread every day. And all this costs only $1.44 USD for a single sandwich.
