Bánh Mì Hội-An is a tiny Vietnamese café thirty seconds from Hackney Central that makes big, extremely satisfying, bánh mì for takeaway. We tend to err towards the ones with the most in it - like the Hội-An Special - because greed, but whatever filling you go for you’re going to be happy. The char siu is sweet, the pork belly chunky, and the bread itself is the perfect equilibrium between soft and chewy and crisp and flaky. There are other things on the menu too, like noodle salads and phở. Both are perfectly decent, but it’s the bánh mì you should be focused on.
