Obanhmi (Banh Mi) shop – authentic Vietnamese baguette in KL/PJ

Thanks to Sean (eatdrinkkl.blogspot.com) of course for another great find in this PJ town! 🙂
I really enjoyed my lunch today munching on this uber-delicious banh mi. It was crammed fat with pickled vegetables, fried egg, pork ham, cilantro and spread with a layer of thick pork pate.

BELOW: OMG Banh Mi –  RM11.20 each.

I requested for the OMG banh mi where everything was doubled. If you are a small eater, then the O School – basic (RM8.20) or O Sunny (RM9.20); which is an O School with added sunny side up egg should suffice.

Daniel, one of the owners who was around the time we were there was genuinely friendly and very chatty. It’s obvious he’s very excited of his new venture and takes pride in serving the best banh mi in town.

The options are either pork ham or lemongrass chicken for now but come this Saturday beef stew and BBQ pork would be making its debut at Obanhmi. I’m so excited and I think I might be able dropping in for dinner! 🙂

The key to god banh mi starts with the bread (or so I was told). The baguette here are baked fresh daily. Each lovely loaf boasts perfect crispy outer crust with soft, pillowy insides.

I thought it’s really value for money considering the size of each banh mi and the amount of ingredients cramped into its cavity. Each banh mi is assembled by order and dressed with housemade mayonnaise spread.

I love the thick layer of pork pate; also housemade. Almost everything (or should I say everything?) in the banh mi here is made on the premise!

For breakfast, drop in for their fresh just-out-of-the oven baguettes. Choose between condensed milk and a baguette for RM3.50 or with eggs for RM4.50. I sampled the condensed milk one and it was so addictive; warm crusty bread dipped in thick creamy sweet condensed milk. It’s a simple meal but one that guarantees a happy start to the day!

Daniel treated us to some Vietnamese spring rolls as well today. I was too stuffed by then to try it but we tapau-ed it back for the office for the others to try. I can’t wait for the fresh spring rolls! I’m definitely fonder of the non-fried variety.

Last but not least I have to make the disclaimer that I have never been to Vietnam and I have certainly not tasted any of the original banh mi on the streets of Vietnam.
However, I really enjoyed my banh mi here and my opinions here are made solely based on its taste.
Feel free to share with me your feedback on the banh mi here at Obanhmi if you have been to Vietnam. 🙂
