6 Recommended Bahn Mi Restaurants in Tokyo│Vietnamese Selection

“必見”東京のおすすめ バインミー店6選 !



Báinh mì is a Vietnamese sandwich consisting of meat, meat patties, vegetables, herbs, sauce, and other ingredients in a French bread-like bucket. It has already been widely recognized in Japan, where it has become a popular and healthy sandwich, thanks to its convenience and the fact that it can be eaten with plenty of meat and vegetables (namasu) that protrude from the bread. For example, it was sold at Seven-Eleven.

There are many theories about the origin of báinh mì, but it is believed that it originally originated as a Vietnamese-style sandwich made from French bread that was introduced during the French colonial period. However, it has a crispier crust and a chewier interior than French bread. In Vietnam, it is a true “soul food” and is very commonly eaten for breakfast and snacks.

Even in Tokyo, you may have seen an increasing number of “bahn mi” shops and Vietnamese restaurants here and there recently. Also, since takeout was originally the mainstay of the bahn mi market, it fits in well with the current times.
In this article, I would like to introduce six recommended bain-mee shops in Tokyo among those that the Vietnamese author has visited.

Many Vietnamese living in Japan recommend this “Banh Mi★Sandwich”.

The restaurant has been located in Takadanobaba, Shinjuku-ku, since 2010, and in addition to Takadanobaba, they have opened stores in Suidobashi and Kichijoji, as well as in kitchen cars. Considering the word of mouth and online reviews, I would say that the bahn mi at Bainmee★Sandwich is the most likely candidate for the best bahn mi in Tokyo. Of course, it is also a favorite of the author, and in my opinion, one of the best bain-mee in all of Japan.

The restaurant has been introduced on TV and is also frequented by celebrities.

Bánh mì bà bà is a bahn mi restaurant in Shimokitazawa, Setagaya-ku, where you can enjoy the local Vietnamese atmosphere with plastic chairs placed inside and outside the restaurant. Takeout is also available, but the desire to eat at the restaurant will be stimulated.

We opened in Shimokitazawa in 2018 out of a desire to “taste delicious and authentic bahn mi in Japan. It is loved by many customers because it is closer to the local market and they can enjoy the same bahn mi as the authentic one.

In addition, the restaurant is unique in that Vietnamese ham and bahn mi bread can be purchased separately.

The crispy, light texture of the bain mee bah bah bread is irresistible, and the ingredients inside have an impactful flavor with Vietnamese gusto and seasoning. Once you try it, you will never forget it, and many people keep coming back for more.

In addition to báinh mì, other popular dishes include barber lemon, a homemade lemonade, and chè, a Vietnamese dessert.
