Banh Mi and Bottles Brings Vietnamese Street Food to South Street


banh mi bottles 940Ever hear of a Vietnamese Taphouse? Well there’s one coming to South Street. Tuan Phung is bringing Vietnamese street food and over 200 different bottles of craft beer to 712-714 South Street.

Banh Mi and Bottles will focus mostly on “street bites,” or Vietnamese tapas, but also on the menu will be Banh mi, pho, salad rolls, and other authentic Vietnamese dishes. On top of the 200 to 300 varieties of beer to choose from, Phung says they’ll have a full bar with house-made organic cocktails with a Southeast Asian influence.

Phung’s father is the head chef Pho Ha on 6th and Washington, and with his father’s cooking expertise and the help of friends, Phung hopes to make Banh Mi and Bottles feel as authentic as possible—as if you were on a real street corner in Vietnam.

The building is rather large, with the front area devoted to takeout and the rest for seating. Banh Mi and Bottles will be open for lunch and dinner all week, and Phung anticipates opening early May.
