New item on the menu - fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls 120 for 3 pcs.

Didn't try these though as I went here craving for their bahnmi. Maybe next time, for sure babalik naman ako dito.

5 stars for my cheap, traditional bahnmi. Super crunchy bread, you'll most probably make a mess.

I dropped by at Landmark Makati to try Bon Bahnmi Vietnamese Sandwich. Someone recommends this sandwich place to me. 128521

Upon scanning the menu, I choose the Traditional Bahnmi (3 Vietnamese ham (Cha Lua, Cha Thu and Cha gio heo), Special Bon Banhmi Pate, Mayonaise, Vegetable and Sauces) for Php134.00 (Large Size). The celery is really good with the banhmi, the bread is like a toasted pandesal and the pate is very flavorful. 128077🏼

Traditional Banhmi - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

You can also get it in a medium size for Php119.00

7th stop: BON BANH MI. 127881127881127881127881

Ahhhhh, finally! Was able to try the BEST Banh Mi in Manila! 128525128525128525128525

After going around Makati searching for Pokestops and catching all the Pokemons we can catch, we all went to Landmark. Despite being full from all our stops, determined talaga si Jai mag Bon Banh Mi! Which is not a bad thing at all since I also want to try this. So bad!!! 128521128518128588🏼

Arrived around 7pm and was surprised that they have a promo!! Yayy!!!! 127881 Instead of paying the regular price of 134 pesos, all large sized banh mi's are just 110 pesos. 128077🏼

I asked Jai what to order and he recommended we try the Traditional Banh Mi.

Traditional Banh Mi - combination of 3 Vietnamese hams (Cha lua, Cha thu , and Cha gio heo) w special paté and sauce, mayonnaise and vegetables.

I am no Banh Mi expert and this is my first ever Banh Mi experience so I don't know how this should taste but wow, this sandwich is good! And yup, it's Tasty and Crispy till the last bite! I am not a fan of liver paté since I don't like the strong rich taste but surprisingly, I liked the combination of the special paté, the special brown sauce and mayonnaise. And the bread!! It was crunchy but just a bit messy to eat because of all the crumbs.

Can't wait to go back and try the other options! 128155

This is definitely one of the best sandwiches I've tried. For only P134 (large), Chicken Bahnmi is really, really good. The sandwich is quite big. For a first timer in Vietnamese sandwiches, all I can say is that I really enjoyed the Chicken Bahnmi as I have enjoyed other Vietnamese dishes.

Chicken Bahnmi is roasted chicken in a 6-inch toasted bread (i.e. French baguettes) with cilantro, cucumbers and mayo. Not sure though if this comes with pâté, as most Vietnamese bahnmi does.

Considering that the store is at the Landmark supermarket area (adjacent The French Baker and Fruitas) they usually pack the Bahnmi as take-out. I wonder how the sandwich would look served as a dine-in dish. I do think Bon Bahnmi is better off having a stand-alone store in the area (serve Vietnamese coffee please!)

Finally I am able to try Bon Banhmi. So I got the

127860 Roast Pork Banhmi - 127775127775127775 I 128156 the Baguette. There is the nice crunch to its crust still having the the moist and chewiness of the bread. I love that they didn't scrimp on the toppings. I enjoyed my meal overall.

Just a 128221, I prefer the bread to be heated only rather than toasted as the crust of the baguette is already crunchy. Also, if you are not of sweet savory dishes you may ask to hold back on the sauce a bit as mine was too much that in every bite sauce was dripping. 128563

Bon Banhmi, finally!

I got a taste of the Traditional Banhmi and Roasted Pork Bahnmi variants last time. They were both yummy but I prefer the traditional one.

Overall, it was a nice sandwich but I'd like to have my next one toasted because the buns/bread, though crunchy, I think would taste better and be less tough to chew when warm... A good sweet and savory snack!

I'd gladly come back to have these again. 128523

Bon Banhmi is still ze best in my book.  I decided to get the roasted pork variant one night after i did a quick stopover at Landmark.

I was surprised to find out that the large ones are only php 100.  Good deal,  eh?  I think they are following the footsteps of some bakeries (discounted items at night)

Bon Banhmi stands out because they don't skimp on ze ingredients.  Each bite is an explosion in your mouth,  a symphony of flavors.  Lasang Vietnam!  As per my good friend Jairus d (Miss ka na namin, Dai!)

Such a bad photo for a comeback review! Lel.

So, my colleague and I were stranded in Landmark because of the thunderstorm. We were really hungry and I immediately thought of just having some light snack before heading out to our own errands that night. And Bon Banhmi suddenly popped out from our conversation while we're thinking where to eat.

Located at the food choices of Landmark, Bon Banhmi offers 6 choices of the traditional Vietnamese sandwich at a very affordable price. My friend tried the Traditional Banh Mi while I opted for the Roasted Pork Banh Mi priced at 115 and 134.

It's not my first time to try banh mi 'cause I usually go for the spring rolls and dried noodles whenever we're going to a Vietnamese restaurant. My expectations were low because the last time I had banh mi was a fail!!! Ehem! I'm looking at you, Pho Bobo! Never again!!! Ba Noi's is even better than them but sadly, Ba Noi's had already stopped serving these since last year.

So going back to my sandwich, it was generously filled with roasted pork chunks and everything else you'd expect in a banh mi... and I really liked it! No! I just love it! I'm no expert when it comes to banh mi but this one's almost at the same level of Ba Noi's. It's just really messy to eat but I wouldn't mind that if it's a good sandwich like this!

Any suggestions for other places serving Banh Mi is very much appreciated! Will surely go back to try the other varieties!

Got the traditional and chicken bahnmi. Both were yummy! Bread was crusty-chewy and for some reason, i found the flavor of the sandwich refreshing. It's Php134 for a large one. Very much worth it coz it's so filling and again, delicious!

Try to drop by before dinner because they seem to run out fast even on weekdays. :)

I've been planning to visit Landmark for quite some time ever since I saw some posts about this banhmi kiosk and Kumori (which I have already tried thanks to the long weekend). But given the horrible traffic, my plan never materialized until when I had to source for showroom merchandise.

Hello, Bon Banhmi!

It's hard to miss this as several directional pull up banners are placed everywhere. There are banners near the escalator, right before the entrance door of the mall and even the passageway to Glorietta. But... I missed it and ended up circling around and checking |ooloo for clues.

After a few minutes, I found it! Yay!

But my enthusiasm was not reciprocated by the server who seemed to be having a serious dilemma or struggling with her monthly visitor. Anyhoo, I ordered a Traditional Banhmi (PHP119, medium | PHP134, large).

I got my sandwich in less than 5 minutes and quickly took a big bite after a few snapshots.

The banhmi was messy to eat! The baguette was quite crunchy and the crumbs tend to either fall or fly.

The three different types of hams were sweet. and were slightly balanced by the cilantro and other veggies. But overall, it was still a sweet sandwich.

Sadly, not exactly my kind of sandwich. But I would be interested to try another variant. 128513

P.S. Landmark was PACKED at 1 PM on a weekday!!!

I've been here way too much I am embarrassed to review this place already. But I ordered something different so it's worth sharing.

I tried the chicken this time. I still liked it. I wish they had a double meat option. I'd like more chicken sana. And ka chika ko na ang Vietnamese lady and she gave me the extra patè I requested! So 5 stars to you!

I don't think I'll try the beef. It looks really dry just looking at it.

I really like this place. It's a good sandwich. But I think I'm lured also by the cheap pricing.

Whoever thought of opening a branch in Landmark has my eternal gratitude.

I FINALLY got to Landmark early enough today, and there is more than enough left for me and a dozen other people to order! And today was a special, at Pho100 for a large sammie. I ordered two to go, a traditional and a chicken. But I couldn't resist, I had to sit down and get started on the traditional one.

It was SO. GOOD. That I got up and ordered another one to go! A total of 3 sandwiches bought tonight!

The bread is so crunchy! But let's see tomorrow after anight in the ref.

The flavors were just right. Nothing too strong, too herby, or too sweet. I was in heaven.

Definitely going back to try other flavors. Mmmmmmm 128523

Bánh mì is a Vietnamese term for all kinds of bread. The word is derived from bánh (bread) and mì (wheat, also spelt mì in northern Vietnam). Bread, or more specifically the baguette, was introduced by the French during its colonial period.

The Vietnamese sandwich, sometimes called a "bánh mì sandwich", is a product of French colonialism in Indochina, combining ingredients from the French (baguettes, pâté, jalapeño, and mayonnaise) with native Vietnamese ingredients, such as cilantro, cucumber, and pickled carrots and daikon.

The classic version  is made with various Vietnamese cold cuts, such as sliced pork or pork bellies, chả lụa (pork sausage), and head cheese, along with the liver pâté and vegetables like carrot or cucumbers.

After phase one of my grocery shopping at Landmark (phase two is at Rustans,  three is in Aura, four is dedicated to booze and it's in Merkado).  I decided to grab a quick bite.  I was supposed to go to Mickey D's but then i remembered Christina R 's review, off i go to Saigon 128512

This is my first time to try bánh mì and i decided to christen my tastebuds via Bon Bahnmi.  The stall is strategically located near the grocery counters,  they are sandwiched between Fruit Magic and Lapids.  I got myself a large roasted pork bánh mì.  Waited for 2 minutes and my Vietnamese sub is ready.

And the large size is huge.  The baguette is toasted and filled with a mixture of roasted pork slices,  cucumber,  some sort of sausage,  mayonnaise,  secret voodoo sauce and liver pâté.  This is one of the best sandwiches I've eaten in a while.  Each bite is like a symphony in my mouth.  I would've preferred some butter on the baguette.  I finished the large sub with or without butter . The only downside is that it's kinda messy -  think baguette crumbs and sauce dripping.  This is not a first date meal.

I'm definitely coming back to try the other bánh mi variants.

They moved to another site. Still within the basement, but now in the middle of the food court, very close to the grocery payment counters. Good thing is I was able to order my sandwich while my groceries were being scanned and that it was ready for pick up right after I paid.

Got myself a toasted pork bahn mi again. This one though had more crunchy skin than my previous order. Still liked it. Almost like the pulled pork sub of Subway in taste. But I would love it if it had more patè, I can't taste it talaga. I requested for extra patè but as with my last purchase, it didn't taste like it had more. Then if they added butter, bahn mi heaven na. Maybe next time I'll just take it home and add those myself.

Sorry for the photo. I ate this in the car before leaving. You might see that it takes three bites for me just to eat thru the diameter. It's a pretty wide sandwich. Bread is very crunchy so it will crumble. Don't eat this in the car if you can help it.

I had a taste of this super sulit and yummy sandwich at PBCom Tower. This food court stall doesn't scrimp on ingredients at P119. It's huge too. Bigger than my size 7.5 feet - wow! Now my go-to lunch sandwich when I feel like wanting a "healthy" meal, so I say to myself. 128514

We went to Landmark to buy groceries for our Christmas noche buena. The grocery section opens at 830am you see. The place was packed. Wow. It must even be more chaotic later in the day. Prawns are now at 1200 per kilo128557 But I have decided never again to buy seafood here because the seafood people refuse to clean my prawns & squid because they're not allowed daw.

Still craving for some of these Vietnamese subs I excitedly went to their stall around 10am after paying for our groceries. Wow, empty! The cashier was already there and said the Bon Bahnmi team is just late128517

We decided to leave and proceed with our other errands. An hour later they were serving customers already. Today I got the pork bahnmi to go. I asked for extra pâté which they said yes to but I didn't taste the extra serving.

Still good for 135 pesos. I heard from Kristin A that they ran out of bread when she went there on evening a few days ago. Hopefully they'll adjust to the demand soon. According to | there's also a branch in LKG. I asked the owners and they said that' branch is open til 8pm.

Shut the front door!!! This coveted Vietnamese sandwich shop is now in Landmark Makati!127881

I saw some signs on the ground floor and I immediately made a beeline to look for this place. I kept looking and looking, mejo na-confuse kasi di ko nakita. I went up to look at the streamer again and it said at the tunnel. I went to the tunnel, nalito again kasi I didn't see it. I must have muttered to myself in frustration and hunger. I went back, ayun!!! I can't believe I went passed it. Kasi naman the tunnel shops are wavy in orientation. It now occupies the space my favorite takoyaki used to be in. Oh well. At least ok ang kapalit. I've never tried the original branch, as it became out of the way for me to visit. I have tried these bahn mi's on the clean streets of Hanoi. I walked by myself at night just to find these. You can see them being peddled there like our local fish ball carts. Also, flight attendants would buy them on trips to Vietnam and sell them to people like me. Hehe.

The verdict? Oh my super value for money. I think I paid 135 for a large, and it was 119 for a medium. Cheap eat, value for money. . I would like more pâté and butter on mine. Im hoping they can accommodate my request next time. Ba Noi's Vietnamese baguettes are better with it's softer and more buttery bread. This one is still ok but it's 4x bigger that that of Ba Noi's. It's soooo big. Even the medium is a big size. Soft in the middle and very crunchy. Crumbs kept falling onto my shirt. I think I like Wabi-sabi's vegetarian bahn mi's (you can't tell there's not meat) only slightly better than this.

Vietnamese owner was there making the sandwiches. She was being assisted by a Landmark assigned cashier that spoke to her in English. Cashier said they've only been open for the last 2 weeks. They have so many meat choices too. The kiosk is set-up Subway style where you can see all the bread, meat and veggies. I will be frequenting this place probably every time I go to the grocery here.
