Obanhmi: Lemongrass Chicken Banh Mi
I know, I know… I’ve been on a bit of a banh mi kick recently. Well, who can blame me? When done right, this is the perfect lunch item and packed with so much flavour (sorry Subway).
Obanhmi is a tiny shop located on Kingsway that serves up… you guessed it… banh mi sandwiches! I stopped by in December to try out their Lemongrass Chicken Banh Mi ($6.75) with lemongrass marinated chicken, red curry, asian sweet chili sauce, garlic, ginger, basil, soy sauce, and fish sauce. The chicken is kind of crumbled up and the bread has a nice crusty bite (sure to leave plenty of crumbs all over you).
Overall, a pretty decent banh mi sandwich
