Vietnam's Most Expensive Banh Mi: What's So Special?
Banh mi, a signature of Vietnamese street food, is known for its reasonable price and savory taste.
Most banh mi cost from VND15,000-25,000 (US$ 0.6-1.1). However, there are always exceptions. Some banh mi are known for their hefty price of VND 50,000 - 100,000 and long-standing popularity.
Banh mi Huynh Hoa (VND 58,000)
The brand name Huynh Hoa comes from two ladies, Huynh and Hoa, who founded the stall. Considered the most expensive banh mi in Saigon, a Huynh Hoa loaf comes at VND 58.000.
Diners are willing to wait in long lines to hold a hot bread full of ham, meat, meat rolls, rousong and pate. According to diners' opinions, Huynh Hoa bread is worth the hype. It comprises delicious, well-seasoned, quality ingredients. A loaf is big enough for two people. Huynh Hoa's store is located at No. 26 Le Thi Rieng, Pham Ngu Lao Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City.

Ba Huynh's banh mi (VND 58.000 )
Huynh, who founded Huynh Hoa, later started another banh mi store called "Bà Huỳnh".
Ba Huynh's banh mi is quite similar to Huynh Hoa's. Sold at the same price, the two have the same fillings and flavors. The store is located at No. 55, Street 4, Do Thanh Residence, District 3.
Opened on Dec. 15, Huynh's store has attracted thousands of people. However, due to too long lines of diners waiting to taste the dish, which goes against current pandemic preventive regulations, the store has had to close down and is waiting for further announcement.
