A couple weeks ago we were in Richmond running some errands when we realized it was lunch time. A quick google search showed that Banh Mi Tres Bon was on the way so we stopped by for lunch. We were a little skeptical at first because it seemed too hip and the Banh Mi trio seemed like a gimmick. We were wrong.
The decor was, as I mentioned above, hip, clean, and very different from a typical Vietnamese restaurant. They had a bunch of Banh Mi to select from, but no regular grilled chicken, so I decided to go for the trio: Cold Cut, Meatball, and (lemongrass) Chicken.
Cost per Sandwich: $11 for 3 mini sandwiches
Bread: 5/5 - Fluffy, moist, and had the right level of crispiness. Had good texture and flavour.
Sauce: 4/5 - Creamy, flavourful, and wellseasoned, but the lemongrass chicken could be saucier.
Filling: 3/5 - Good amount, good texture, but needs more pickling because it's quite subtle.
Meat: 5/5 - Good amount, well seasoned, and flavourful
Value: 4/5 for the trio, others would be 3/5
It was definitely worth going out to Richmond to try the trio and get a taste of everything, but on the whole a little pricier than other places.
