Banh Mi in Indianapolis area?

I've recently gotten hooked on Banh Mi, but don't know of any places in the Indy area that serve it. I know there are a couple of good Vietnamese restaurants around, but don't recall seeing it on their menus--more pho and rice-based dishes than sandwiches. If there aren't any places that sell them ready-made, know of any good sources of the pickled veg etc? Saraga, perhaps? Thanks!!

  1. The little restaurant Saigon kind of near Saraga serves Bahn Mi. I found it a bit too sweet for my taste. They also have a small grocery attached to the place. The menu is extensive and the place seems to do good business on the weekends.

    We do like Viet Cafe but when my DH asked about Bahn MI he was told that is strictly street food.

      Definitely give Saigon a try. I love their Bahn Mi Thit, the hot pork sandwich. I don't know of any place else in Indy that does them. Maybe King Wok a little farther north on Lafayette?
