Vietnamese Stall In A Provision Shop At AMK
Banh Mi Saigon is a relatively new stall, having only opened before Christmas last year! Tucked away in a provision shop, the stall is is owned by Nhi, who goes by the name Victoria. She currently runs a chain of Vietnamese provision shops in Bedok and Sengkang, with the Ang Mo Kio branch being the only one to have the banh mi stall.
The stall here offers a wide variety, with over fourteen types of banh mi to choose from! Enjoy an array of sandwiches stuffed with barbecued pork, pulled chicken, Vietnamese charcuterie, and assorted cuts of the pig such as ear, nose, and trotter. Definitely something unique that you don’t find at most banh mi stalls!
Scrumptious Banh Mi With Unique Cuts Of Pork
The Mixed Pork (Banh Mi Pha Lau Heo) is served at $6.90, with a mouth-watering mix of chewy and gelatinous pork bits consisting of jellied pork ear, nose, skin, and trotter! The pork bits are braised in coconut water, soy, and caramel for sweetness, with the flavour of the coconut water shining through in every bite!
The sandwich also comes with a beautiful spread of chicken liver pate, margarine, pickled carrots and cucumber, and a drizzle of a special soy sauce to finish it. The pork bits have a pleasant sweet-savoury flavour and blend nicely with the flavours of the pate and crunchy vegetables.
The standout, however, is definitely the symphony of textures that are simply to die for! Each bite gives you a heavenly mix of crispiness, chewiness, and crunchiness, with a beautiful layer of creaminess from the pate! As the banh mi lies more on the sweet side, one suggestion would be to ask for more chilli for a better balance of flavours! Nonetheless, it’s still a pretty tasty sandwich overall that’s certainly worth a try!
