One of my fav place at megamall. Whether for snacks or lunch, it never fails when it comes to the crunchiness of its bread.

Wer na u d2 banh mi 128514128514128514

The first time I tasted a banh mi, my mouth did a little happy dance with the flavor party in my mouth, and so I was kind of excited when my friends and I got to stop over here for a little snack before we went our merry way one day.

This place has a stall-type setup in the middle of the mall, with a few chairs and tables set out. They serve a few banh mi variants as well as a few drinks. Prices ranged from 100-200 php, so pretty affordable. We decided on the classic banh mi.

The baguette was nice and crisp and ingredients were fresh. It tasted..well, classic haha. Simple and satisfying. 128076

I love Vietnamese food! I love banh mis! There are too few stores selling good banh mis IMO, so I was really excited to try Banh Mi Kitchen... They promise a crunchy baguette (the building block of a great banh mi) loaded with delicious goodies inside... I wanted to try the classic banh mi, regular size please! My fiance was able to try the wagyu tapa and the protein monster (we have been here twice, I only got the classic both times). I personally liked the classic banh mi. Similar taste to Vietnamese banh mis, but just okay not really something special. They make good on their promise of a crunchy baguette, but that alone doesn't guarantee a delicious sandwich. My fiance liked the wagyu tapa more than the protein monster-- I have to agree... The protein monster was too meaty for my liking, piled with too many things so that nothing stood out in the end. The wagyu tapa tastes better for us, less ingredients that one is able to acutally appreciate everything. I was also able to try the Vietnamese iced tea and coffee on different visits and sadly, I must say that I didn't like either drink. Skip the iced tea, really!128529

I must say that both visits were okay. I would give them 4127775, but the video that was on a loop was 300% annoying tbh. At some point I wanted to throw something at the screen just to stop the video. Not looking forward to dining in because of it. The banh mis were not bad, drinks were not.

Never tried any Vietnamese food, and that made me curious to try the Banh Mi. But before doing so, i had hard time searching its location at SM Megamall, used there locator situated strategically in stretch if mall both ends of Bldg A and B. Never did I realize the store is just located at Mega A and only has kiosk for those who want to at least try it. No idea what to order, the server just recommends the original one. Since it will be first bite then, i decided to make it half. It costs php99 for a 6 inch Banh Mi, not bad and partnered it with Vietnamese Iced Tea. Took them long to serve my order, the large cup of tea was served right after validation of my receipt. It took them long due to the fact i guess that sandwich was made to be toasted. The situation is quite transparent with all the servers were easily be seen preparing your desired choice of sandwich. The time spent is worth the wait. Ugh! I didn't expect i will be getting hooked right after my first bite. The crunch is a test of its freshness of bread. I can't imagine how they did that knowing the bread was not seen being toasted and yet the crunchiness still there up to your last bite. Its content is superb, with silantro, secret sauce, veggies and leaned pork inside; that seriously complements with spiced up condiment, Sriracha Sauce. Vietnamese Tea reminded me something though i couldn't recall perhaps it 's way comparable to Thai Tea i have tasted long time ago. The short time i had was enough to experience Banh Mi and that being a sandwich guy, i definitely recommend this one to those who are willing to explore Vietnamese Meal and once i got to drop by Megamall, will surely be looking forward to have a footlong order of Banh Mi at Banh Mi Kitchen. Surely you'll never regret, have its crunchy first bite. Damn!

Got a half-sized 'The Classic' sandwhich (99php) before going to the movies yesterday. A little pricey in terms of size but the taste totally made up for it. I kinda regret not getting the full size! 128517

I love Vietnamese food so I'm always eager to try any Vietnamese restaurants that I find. I saw this at SM Megamall and reserved my Friday lunch for this. I ordered the P99 The Classic Banh Mi but it's just half of the original size and I think the full size could have been the better option if you're looking for a lunch-worthy serving size. If I compare this to Bon Banh Mi, here's my verdict:
Bread - Banh Mi Kitchen
Taste - Bon Banh Mi
Size - Bon Banh Mi

But overall experience is good and there are more flavors to choose from. 128523128077🏻

After trying a lot of bahn mi sandwich this one is one of the best.

Prices are quite reasonable.
Service is okey and the place is clean.

Viet iced tea is also okey.

I haven't tried authentic Banh Mi's but I swear, this place serves FREAKIN' GOOD ones! We got The Classic which was packed with Vietnamese ham, pork paté, pickled veggies, cilantro and hoisin sauce. The flavors really blend well together and contrary to other comments, I loved their generosity on the paté. The crunchiness of the baguette made a huge difference too. Definitely a new favorite here in Mega and it's perfect for those on-the-go and are on a busy shopping spree.9786

I was suppose to do some errands at mega and plan to be here early so i can check out the food scene here. But due to a chill friday night drink i woke up late, edsa was traffic as usual so when i got here its already late afternoon 128529

This place was recommended by my friend who warned me that if ever the bread was not crunchy i should complain. Hmmm... good thing was that mines today was crunchy good as advertise at their screen.

Went for their classic at 150. It was really worth it and was really good. Bread was crunchy.... parsly blends well with their vietnamese ham but liver spread was abit overwhelming. A few minutes later i realize it was all gone and i forgot to put sriracha sauce. 128549

There goes my brunch-da for the day.

They offer Vietnamese sandwich which comprised of crunchy baguette and fresh delicious ingredients.

I got to Mega early so I tried half first of The Classic which is 99PHp. And I liked it so much I ordered two more for take out: The Classic (whole - 149PHp) and Lemongrass Pork (whole - 149PHp). Sulit for the price!

I stumbled upon this place I was strolling the long halls of SM Megamall. I tried this out, well, basically out of curiosity. I ordered The Classic flavor and it tasted good. Its flavorful and very appealing to the eyes. One thing that didn't go well I think was its bread. It was too crunchy, which didn't seem to match the meat.

Pretty accurate version of the Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwich. However, they really used a lot of vetsin. I had a crazy migraine that lasted a few hours. Too bad because I enjoyed it as a snack. I recommend it if you're fine with the additives. Its really worth trying at least once.

Haha! Sorry dennis almost the same ang picture natin!

And Sayang! If only this was spotted earlier, we could have made this our main meal. Honestly, banh mi kitchen is offers much more satisfying and affordable meal.

128204128525 beef tapa whole for 189 pesos
Love the crunchy bread with the liver spread, and the really tender tapa! I could actually have another one but we have to go shortly. What's better is because you can order a half sandwich. Yes, uso ang half dito (parang half rice lang)

We instructed the server to divide it into 3 kaso it was way too unequal. I had the largest part. Thanks Elaine O and Dennis O haha!!

I wish they have a bigger place though. Ang awkward ng dining expeeience because your back will be touching the other customer's back. Haha.

The latest food trend in manila foodscene. BanhMi have finally arrive in our foodscene. I've been in love with this sandwhich ever since I've tasted it in Vietnam. A simple cheap streetside viet sandwhich that goes well with a cup of viet coffee.

After our dessert in Yo Panda, just as we go down the escalator we noticed Banhmi Kitchen. We immediately went back up since we are still bitin from our lunch in Makansutra. We went for the wagyu tapa. The meat was tender good with a hint of sweetness. The liver patte was delicious and the egg omelette inbetween give another layer of texture. The veggies were also all fresh good.

Overall this a great delicious find that is also wallet friendly. Nice one! 128522128077

I'm always looking for a place nearby to eat for lunch and I'm so glad to discover that Banh Mi Kitchen is currently in Powerplant mall's POP by Retail Lab store. I tried the Wagyu Beef Tapa and it was really good. The meat was tender and the sauce just blends all the ingredients perfectly. Serving was hefty and the bread was really crunchy! Truly passed the crunch test! :) By the way, their Vietnamese Iced Coffee was great too!

One of the best I've tried 128077128523
They have different fillings, but when in doubt, order the classic. I did. And loved it.
They say the secret to a good banh mi is in the bun/bread. Panalo ang bread nila! Kaya pala they have this #crunchtest , try etttt!
Had the milk tea, which is ok. I wanted to get sana the iced coffee but it was out of stock. Hmmm next time then.

Quick stop @ this new food stall in 4th Flr Bldg A of SM Megamall. Finally, I get to taste Banh Mi for the first time. Heard a lot from friends about this Vietnamese sandwich. Its bread is a baguette.. But this one is crunchy (but not hard) and I find it good. I quickly chose the classic banh mi ( half costs P99, while the whole bun costs P149). Had the half bun , just to satisfy my cravings. The classic has vietnamese ham, roast pork, cucumber, pickled raddish, carrot, mayo, hoisin sauce, and seasoned pate. My verdict: i love it. Bold taste but not overpowering. It has distinct flavors compared with the usual sandwich that we have. Plus I enjoyed the crunchiness of the bread128076🏼 i can finish a whole bun next visit 10084

Also tried , Vietnamese iced tea (one cup is P60), taste is close to the taste of milk tea. For me its ok.

Finally gave in to the #CrunchTest , had their Classic Banhmi partying in my tummy with its different fresh ingredients.
.
.
This sandwich called Banh Mi is a traditional street food in Vietnam wherein the form of its recipe is in French, as it being eaten with a toasted baguette. They have various selections, but the one I got is one of their best sellers. It is made up of: Ham, Roast pork, Homemade pate, pickled veggies and cilantro. For unique flavors, you may also enjoy other kinds such as: Wagyu Tapa, Beef Rendang, etc. Price for full ranges from 149php to 189 php and the regular ones cost 99 to 129php.
.
.
Plus they have 2 beverages which can be paired up with their Banh Mi. For 99php you can get either a glass of their Viet Coffee or Viet Iced Tea (the one in orange). Gotta love the crunchyness that they take seriously because you can have your Banh Mi replaced when they serve it soft (or not crunchy at all).
