WHAT IS A BÁNH MÌ?
Bánh mì is a Vietnamese sandwich with a unique cross-cultural history stemming from the French colonization of Vietnam in the 19th century. It is a fusion of French and Vietnamese culinary traditions; it combines a crispy French baguette, a creamy French mayonnaise, and pate with traditional Vietnamese cooking to create a rich and flavorful yet delightfully refreshing meal which can be enjoyed at any time of day.

“ FRESH, FRESH, FRESH!! ”
Perhaps the best Bahn Mi sandwiches in the twin cities can be most accurately described as: Fresh, fresh, fresh!! From the perfectly baked bread with its perfect crackling crust and warm soft interior, to the perfectly seasoned melt in your mouth pork, and the crunchy tart veggies, the common theme is fresh.
“ ON POINT! ”
Originally went to Quang to get banh mi but they ran out of the baguettes. We were dissappointed of course but some lady told us about Lu's across the street so thought we'd try it out...and boy, was I glad we did. Banh mi was ON POINT! It reminded me the the legit banh mi over in the West Coast.
“ I'll be back! ”
Yum. I don't always love banh mi - sometimes it's just too much bread and it cuts up your mouth and the filling is dry. That's not the case at Lu's! The bread is great - crusty without giving you a sore mouth for a couple days after. The fillings are delicious and well proportioned. I've had the beef and chicken and both were flavorful without being fatty.
