So I felt like a bahn mi when I was in Melbourne as the ones you buy in Wellington are just not the same. So I did a Google search for “bahn mi Melbourne” and I got an urban spoon site and it said ba’get. When I walked in, I discovered it was more a chain than a privately owned company. The eatery did not have vietnamese or asian servers, so I was slightly apprehensive.
Classic Bahn mi
So I just ordered a classic bahn mi. First bite was awesome. Really crisp bread and a lot of chilli. So much chilli I got the hiccups. Good amount of pickled, carrot, cucumber, mint and spring onion but if I decided to have one in Richmond I would of got more filling. The server asked if I wanted salt and pepper I replied yes and I think it made my roll a lot more salty which is a real shame. Good amount of pate though.
So the Bahn mi was good except for the salted and pepper. Would I go back to Ba’get, not sure. As i said this place looks more like a franchise and i am not sure if I am ready to get a bahn mi from a franchise. Also they were not the typical price of a bahn mi you can buy from a more genuine vietnamese bakery.
