Banh Shop at Vancouver International Airport

Diana Chan November 30, 2017 Fast Food, Richmond, Three Beakers, Vietnamese

Banh Shop is located in the US Departures area of Vancouver International Airport (YVR). As it’s fairly new, I thought I would give it a try before my flight. They also have this at Pearson International Airport in Toront, DFW International Airport in Texas, and soon Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

I just missed breakfast, so I ordered off the lunch menu at 10am.

It comes all wrapped up if you need it to grab and go to make your flight. I did have a bit of time, so I ate it at the tables.

Grilled Pork Meatball

This banh mi has minced pork marinated with black pepper, Vietnamese caramel glaze and scallions; with a cucumber-cilantro aioli. The sandwich was ok, but you can tell it’s Americanized. It bread was doughy and hard on the outside. The meatballs itself was decent.

It’s a good alternative to the different fast food options in the area, but it’s won’t rock your tastebuds.

We rate Banh Shop

    It looks more like an elongated ciabatta! Wish it was panini-pressed 😁

    Besides the poor service the Coconut Chicken Banh Mi was all bread and not other ingredients and for $12 there is plenty of other choice for better value .. 2 thumbs down
