Obanhmi, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Bánh mì is a popular Vietnamese sandwich which is made of a Vietnamese-style baguette and native Vietnamese ingredients, such as cilantro, fish sauce and pickled carrots. Having heard a lot of good things about OBanhmi in Damansara Uptown, we made a date with our friend to meet here for breakfast.

Long wooden tables and high steel chairs make up the interior of this establishment. Obanhmi is opened by two Hanoian best friends Daniel Nguyen and Chris Bui. We quickly study the blackboard menu on the wall and place our orders for an O School (RM10.70), O Sunny (RM12.20) and O BBQ (RM11.20) sets which come with a drink. They have recently added a couple more new sandwiches to their menu - O-Ga with chicken teriyaki and O-Roasted Pork.

My first thought was that the bánh mì looks good - love the vibrant colours and fresh cilantro that tops each sandwich. I took a bite and was relieved that Vietnamese-style baguettes are crisp yet light and airy, and not at all hard. Each bánh mì is packed full of ingredients, including pork pâté, homemade mayo as well as pickled carrot and radish.The O School (the original Vietnamese baguette) is made up of lemongrass chicken, chilli and ham,while the O Sunny, which was my favorite is basically the O School with an added fried egg - tastes so good!  The O BBQ is served with BBQ pork, a sunny-side up egg and Vietnamese chilli sauce - this was Hubby's favorite (a really meaty one, this is!) but I found the meat to be on the dry side. 

There is also a O.M.G which is twice the load of O Sunny (only RM11.20) - great value if you're a big eater. We also ordered a O Susu for the kids - which is a baguette served with condensed milk. Our friend also ordered some O Rolly (RM7), deep fried Vietnamese spring rolls with minced pork, mushrooms, shredded carrots and mung bean noodles.

O Sunny - my fav!

  5. Ooooo...I'd love this place. Vietnamese? Gee!!! I'd never have guessed. Must be the French influence from their colonial days before the Vietnam War.
