Ben and I went to check out the new Bahn Mi Tres Bon in the central at Garden City. This is where the new Walmart Supercenter is located.
We came just about 7:00PM and the place was almost full. The dining area is not big, with a long table, a few small tables and a casual sofa seating area. Seating is quite tight.
Customers place order and pay at the counter. The menu is not big, slightly pricier than regular Vietnamese restaurant.
Customers will be given a number to be placed at your table so that the server will deliver your orders to your table.
At the back of the restaurant, there is a self service counter of water, condiments and cutlery.
We tried a few items. The above is Vietnamese style fresh soy milk. We had the hot version which was served piping hot. It has good soy milk flavour with just the right sweetness.
We shared a chicken bahn mi since this is a bahn mi restaurant.
The baguette was quite crispy although it did not look like traditional baguette with smooth crust.
We shared an appetizer of tapioca dumpling which is traditionally filled with shrimp and pork. The tapioca skin was chewy. The fried shallot adds crunchiness and fragrance to the dish. It is served with a tangy sauce with garlic and chili.
The last item we tried was the Green Papaya Salad. The green papaya salad here has jerky instead of the more commonly used prawns.
The dressing for the green papaya salad was darker and more savory than the tapioca dumplings.
The meal came to $30.19 including tax and tips. Credit card is accepted here.
