If you’ve been following my posts, you’ve probably noticed my recent obsession with banh mi sandwiches. Luck would have it that a small banh mi sandwich shop opened up a few weeks ago in Williamsburg. Actually it’s just phase one of the owners’ plans as they are preparing to launch their restaurant in a few months (located adjacent to the sandwich counter) that will be serving a full Vietnamese menu. You know that means bowls of fresh pho! In the meantime, the banh mi sandwiches are flying off the counter at this latest food enterprise in Williamsburg. LOL, is Vietnamese the new Thai of Williamsburg?

Priced at just $5 each, Banh Mi 172’s 7 varieties of banh mi include xiu mai (Vietnamese Meatball), banh mi ga nuong sa (grilled lemongrass chicken), banh mi thit khia (bbq pork), banh mi cha ca (fish cake sandwich) and a vegetarian option (of course). I’ve tried the #1 special combination (all of the above excluding the lemongrass chicken) as well as the classic #2 (thinly sliced pork). I really liked the special combination since it was a bit different especially with the fish cake slices. The #2 Classic is spot on and will defintiely do the job. The next time I’m definitely going to try the BBQ Pork sandwich. I found out one of the owners is Chinese and I’m hoping they’ll use Chinese Cha Xiu BBQ Pork like they do it out in the Vietnamese restaurants in California. Check it out!

P.S. Banh Mi 172 is open till 1AM on Fri and Sat so you now have an alternative option to the greasy pizza across the street!

    I am typically classified as a “picky eater.” However, as the chalkboard sign out front advertises, the Banh Mi 172 experience is sure to bring you “unforgettable flavor”…and that is a good thing! The flavors are clean and sophisticated, and surprisingly…this picky eater has no complaints! While I may have a slight personal bias, everything that I have tried from the Banh Mi 172 menu, as well as the menu-in-progress for An Nhau, the full restaurant next door, is delicious. But of course, words do not aptly describe food, so take the L train from Manhattan to Bedford Ave and try it for yourself.
