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.
