Introducing: Banh Mi Boys on Yonge Street, the second location of the popular Vietnamese sub shop
The Food: The same menu as the original Banh Mi Boys location on Queen West: Vietnamese sub sandwiches (including the five-spice pork belly banh mi, one of the city’s top 20 sammies), steamed baos and tacos. The Chau brothers are working on adding an authentic Vietnamese shrimp dish, and rumours are circulating about a secret menu—try ordering the pork belly and fried chicken Club Bao.
The Place: The interior of the new shop is very similar to the original, plus a new garage door at the entrance. Three murals by Uber 5000, a regular Banh Mi Boys patron, and a cherry blossom and pagoda mural painted inside the front door give the small, largely windowless room a hit of colour and energy.
