The Best Banh Mi in Toronto
The best banh mi in Toronto are the Vietnamese sandwiches of your dreams. No matter your preference—toasted or not, with cold cuts or nem nướng, maybe with some extra pâté, if you ask nicely—these crispy, balanced subs are the whole package.
Here are the best banh mi in Toronto.
Spadina’s institution for Vietnamese sandwiches is going strong after more than 40 years in the game. The family-run brand has a number of locations across the GTA. Head inside and order a thập cẩm banh mi, $3.50 for a small: there’s usually a huge pile of them on the countertop ready to go.
Extreme affordability and fluffy buns make this Jane and Finch restaurant a North York treasure. There was a time when these sandwiches were preposterously priced at just $1, but these days they average around $3.50. If you’re on a budget, Nhu Lan still has a basic butter and pâté option for $1.50.
This homey counter may be off the main drag of Chinatown, but it’s a contender for some of the best Vietnamese eats in the neighbourhood. Banh mi buns are compact and filled with pickled veggies and your favourite meats. The owner lived in France for a while, hence the name Ba Le, which is Paris in Vietnamese.
