The banh mi here is created by Do Van Phi, a former chef at the Nam Hai (now the Four Seasons Nam Hai). “Prepared in matter of seconds, the banh mi comes topped with an abundance of herbs – Vietnamese mint, spring onions, basil and a spicy helping of homemade chili sauce,” CNN wrote. CNN also picked Madam Khanh – The Banh Mi Queen as one of the best banh mi’s restaurant in Hoi An. The restaurant has a bigger menu, including vegetarian, beef and fish banh mi - plus a slightly sweet sauce and added an omelet inside. In addition, La Banh Mi Sai Gon Tai Hoi An is one of the good banh mi in Hoi An. Located in western Hoi An, La Banh Mi Sai Gon Tai Hoi An is a nostalgic stop. “The most memorable ingredient is the pate. Off to the right, a wood-fired oven opens to reveal flames, licking a batch of fresh pork liver pate,” CNN wrote. CNN also picked Banh Mi Phuong as one of the best banh mi’s restaurant in Hoi An. The most famous banh mi in the world, Banh Mi Phuong sells roughly 3,000-4,000 sandwiches per day. The most important thing about banh mi is the bread. It has to be fresh -- crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. The restaurant has one of the largest menus with everything from vegetarian banh mi to bacon and beef.
