Nha Toi Vietnamese Banh Mi – Williamsburg Brooklyn
160 Havemeyer St,
Brooklyn, NY 11211
I made a joke a few months ago that Vietnamese is the new Thai of Williamsburg. I think it’s kind of becoming more of a reality now with Silent on Berry, Bep and Banh Mi 172 on Bedford, and Nha Toi on Havemeyer. At the moment, only Bep offers Pho, but these days the craze is really all about Banh Mi no? (Banh Mi 172’s larger restaurant next door slated to open in a month will feature pho).
I’m still a little torn between Nha Toi and Banh Mi 172’s Banh Mi. The sandwiches are larger at Nha Toi with more meat and pickled vegetables, but the liver pate, mayo and other sauces they use at Banh Mi 172 do make their sandwiches quite interesting too. Nha Toi has indoor (funky) seating vs the sandwich stand at Bahn Mi 172. Nha Toi features 15 different types of banh mi include a pho banh mi with meat cooked in pho meat broth (what happened to the pho?). Check it out!
