Bhan mi Tampa Bay. Where to find.

I pick up my bhan mi at a vietnamese cafe/ grocery just east of the southeast corner of Dale Mabry and Waters in Tampa. Any others you know of in the Tampa Bay area?

  1. My post from Aug 06. "I had a great Banh Mi sandwich at Thuy Cafe: 5944 34th St. N. Suite #37, St. Petersburg, FL 33714. Very fresh and the price seemed reasonable, $4.50 for it and a bottle of water. She closes at 6pm most days."

    Not sure of the current status of the place since I don't work in Pinellas anymore.

      Went back to Thuy cafe this weekend. Delicious! Choices include a traditional, cold cut sandwich, or with grilled pork, chicken or even tofu- fresh and inexpensive at $3.50 each. I bought two sandwiches with the intent to share one- that didn't happen. It's cash only and I believe closed on Wednesdays; open till 6 the other days. There is also a variety of boba teas.

        Thanks for reporting on this. I was concerned that there might be only one type of sandwich, the classic "banh mi" with the pate. I will likely try to get over there in the next few weeks.
