Vietnamese restaurant Whaam Bánh Mì, specialising in Vietnamese Bánh Mì Sandwiches, is set to launch in London's Soho next month.
The business is the brainchild of Tom Barlow who spent several years working in Vietnam before moving back to London to develop his Whaam Bánh Mì concept and has since spent over a year doing recipe testing and working with both Vietnamese street food traders and British bakers. He then tested the concept at several street food festivals.
Bánh mì sandwich are traditionally filled with a variety of hot fillings such as meats, tofu, seafood and vegetables. Whaam Bánh Mì's fillings will have a Western twist, but will offer the more traditional bread which has a thinner crust and a more airy centre than its French counterpart. Fillings will include ‘Asian BBQ Shredded Pork', ‘Lemongrass Chicken' and ‘Ginger & Chilli Tofu'.
Whaam Bánh Mì will be open from 11am to 11pm.
The restaurant will soft launch from 30 March to 2 April 2015 and will offer 50% off all food to anyone who has subscribed to the mailer on the Whaam Bánh Mì website.
