Adelaide’s Banh Mi is a super-popular Vietnamese eatery named after its signature menu item: the balanced, flavoursome banh mi. It was opened in 2009 by Andy Vinh, but has since moved from Chinatown to Adelaide’s CBD where he offers a marinaded tofu roll and a big range of meat rolls to the office lunch crowd.

Last week, EatClub launched in Adelaide, so to follow up from our burger giveaway, we’re giving away 100 banh mis on Wednesday the 28th of November from Banh Mi in the CBD.
When Vinh was studying, he used to bring banh mis for himself to uni from the suburbs. ‘A couple of my friends tried it at uni and a few months later I was bringing about 25 rolls from the suburbs to feed all my uni friends.’ His business was born because he loved seeing people trying banh mi for the first time. ‘It’s the perfect lunch product.’
In 2009 there weren’t many banh mi places in Adelaide’s CBD, so after wanting a career change from physiotherapy, Vinh decided to set up shop. ‘In 2009 I was looking for a business name and banhmi.com.au was available and I thought it was too good not to take it,’ he says on the name of his business. ‘We really were one of the first to bring it all together in Adelaide… a good look and good service as well as good food.’
His shop provides quite a contrast to the CBD with its bright walls and traditional purple and red plastic chairs (the ones you see everywhere in Vietnam). The light shades are made from old Vietnamese books and the tables are covered with clippings from Vietnamese newspapers.
Apart from banh mis, Banh Mi offers Vietnamese bún, rice paper rolls, spring rolls and Vietnamese coffee. All of their meats are slow-cooked in house, they pickle their own carrots and make their own butter, pâté and pork crackling. There are also plenty of vegetarian and vegan options at this Vietnamese eatery. Their fluffy white and wholemeal Vietnamese baguettes are delivered daily.
Which Banh Mis are Available at the Giveaway?
Vinh believes that everyone loves banh mi, with varying preferences of how much chilli and coriander are put in the baguette. For the giveaway, new EatClub customers can choose from a roast pork banh mi, a chicken banh mi, a beef banh mi or Momma Vinny’s Marinated Tofu, which is created using Vinh’s mum’s tomato-based marinade.
