Banh Mi Saigon -Hidden Banh Mi Gem In Ang Mo Kio

This is one of the best banh mis I have eaten in Singapore. Located at Blk 505 Ang Mo Kio Ave 8, it’s a small corner shop at the void deck of a HDB block. They have a wide variety of Vietnamese sundry goods for sale together with a plethora of banh mi flavours and some noodle dishes. There’s always a queue when I’m there but fret not, the queue moves quite fast, and the shop has cute small plastic tables and chairs outside just like in Vietnam. There are over 14 types of banh mi on the menu ranging from chicken to pork ear to grilled pork and egg. Thair banh mi’s are stuffed to the brim with meat and veggies, be sure to add an egg for some extra flavour and creaminess to the dish.

Food we Ordered

Banh Mi Saigon -Hidden Banh Mi Gem in Ang Mo Kio

Roasted Pork Banh Mi ($9.90) + Extra Egg ($2) – Banh mi heo quay

This banh mi featuring succulent roasted pork and creamy egg was a delightful fusion of flavors and textures. The meaty goodness of the roasted pork paired well with the velvety richness of the egg, creating a satisfying mouthfeel that is sure to please banh mi enthusiasts. The roasted pork skin was extremely crispy complementing the soft bread.

Special great ($7.90) – Banh mi cha lua

The “Special Great” banh mi, boasting an assortment of various processed meats, may appeal to those seeking an adventurous flavor combination. However, the overwhelming number of processed meats resulted in a lack of balance and taste, making it a somewhat heavy and less enjoyable choice compared to the roasted pork banh mi,

Iced Red Milk Tea ($3.80)

Vietnamese Coconut Coffee ($5)

The Vietnamese red milk tea was alright, but it was the Vietnamese coconut coffee stole the show with its creaminess and delightful flavor pairing. The rich and smooth texture of the coconut coffee, combined with the subtle coconut notes, created a beautiful pairing leaving me wanting more.

Fresh Spring Rolls ($8.90)

The fresh spring rolls were decent, with a variety of vegetables and flavorful herbs wrapped in rice paper. However, they were sticking to each other and broke apart when handling.

Is Bahn Mi Saigon Worth it?

The baguette is toasted before serving. This ensures a very crispy outside and a soft fluffy inside. They assemble the banh mi to order so they’re always fresh. Please eat them ASAP as they tend to become hard after some time from my experience.

These banh mis have generous fillings and are delicious. They make an awesome grab and go meal. I grabbed these before heading to the beach and enjoyed every bit of it. This is my go-to banh mi store in Singapore, a little pricey if you’re comparing to Vietnam but its excellent value. The plastic tables and chairs together with the Vietnamese music blasting transport you back to the streets of Vietnam with authentic flavors to tantalize your tastebuds.
