392 Queen St W, Toronto
A must-stop place in Toronto, in my opinion is Banh Mi Boys. Banh Mi was always one of my favourite things growing up. I would always look forward to when my parents would do their weekly trips to Edmonton/Calgary and pick some up.
There are a few locations for Banh Mi boys, and two of them are relatively central and close to where I was staying. I was walking distance to both of them, so I went to the one by Chinatown. I am usually a traditionalist, getting Vietnamese cold cuts, but Banh Mi boys is a bit more on the modern side. They do banh mis, tacos, baos, and other side fares. I tried a couple of baos and a banh mi, but most of the photos were terrible, and even the one I’m posting is not great.
This is their five spice pork belly banh mi and bao. Nice thick pieces of pork belly, with generous amount of toppings, this was one of my favourite thing to eat during my whole trip in Toronto. I only wish I had more time so that I could try the rest of their menu!
Just a short post on Banh Mi Boys, but if you’re ever in the area, I would definitely recommend giving them a try! It’s quick and easy and relatively cheap!
