Banh Mi Kitchen 越南法棍 @ Jalan Zainal Abidin, Georgetown, Penang.

Banh Mi Kitchen 越南法棍 may not be operated by true blue Vietnamese but the Banh Mi is of certainly quality. The proprietor has managed to source authentic, flaky, light yet substantial Vietnamese-styled Baguette. The newly opened Banh Mi specialist only has one menu- Banh Mi, but comes with various toppings and fillings. Though the signature is a Pork-based filling, other non-pork options include Chicken, Fish Cake and Fried Egg; the offering is as simple and straight-forward as it is. The interior decor is equally simple... with some dining tables and chairs but the good thing is the place is fully air-conditioned. Worth the visit if you do enjoy a decent Vietnamese Banh Mi. Banh Mi Kitchen can be found opposite to the UMNO building, few doors away from Kraftmen Cafe.

Roasted Chicken Banh Mi (Rm 9.90) + Egg (Rm 2.90)

Grilled Pork Neck Banh Mi (Rm 11.90) + Egg (Rm 2.90)

Combo A- Sugarcane or Coffee (Rm 4.90)/ Combo B- Any Drinks and Fries

A good Banh Mi should be flaky, crispy but not overly flaky to the extent that it will completely disintegrate into your lap. We were glad that Banh Mi Kitchen's passed the test. We had both roasted Chicken and signature Grilled Pork Neck; both shared the same ingredients except Chicken would be spread with Chicken Pate while Pork's will be Pork's. The Grilled Pork Neck had a better smoky aroma and flavor as compared to the roasted Chicken, probably due to the fat content but we must concur that both were delicious. The Fries though, were a little less-crisp than we would have hoped.
