Your Guide to the Most Delicious Banh Mi Sandwiches Around Irving

Enjoy the Best Banh Mi Sandwiches Around Irving 

A Vietnamese favorite, banh mi sandwiches were born on the streets of Saigon. They often come piled high with meat and vegetables and are a favorite for lunch or dinner. To sample a banh mi sandwich, head to one of these eateries near our Irving apartments:


Found at the Dallas Farmers Market, Nammi serves some of the tastiest Vietnamese fare in town. The chefs offer a twist on traditional dishes. They use the finest, freshest ingredients, and their banh mi sandwiches aren't to be missed. The sandwiches come topped with vegetables and are best enjoyed with an Asian soda or a glass of basil mint lemonade. 

Sandwich Hag 

As a child, Chef Reye was her mom's unofficial sous chef. She learned to cook from scratch and later developed her own cooking techniques. Today, Reye proudly owns the Sandwich Hag. The dishes feature fresh ingredients and bold flavors, and the banh mi sandwiches are a customer favorite. Choices include ginger tofu, ginger chicken, and house pork sausage. The Sandwich Hag welcomes diners Wednesday through Sunday. 

Red Stix 

Step into Red Stix to enjoy Asian street food. Chef Uno takes inspiration from her childhood memories in Thailand and worldwide travels. She was born in a refugee camp and later came to America with her parents. Chef Uno now proudly owns Red Stix and has been featured on the Cooking Channel and Eye Opener TV. Banh mi choices include grilled shrimp, beef tenderloin, and chicken Thai curry satay. The restaurant offers online ordering for when you're on the go. 

Before enjoying a banh mi sandwich, spend a fun-filled day at the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center. For more information on becoming a resident of Olympus Las Colinas, please contact our leasing team. We’ll take you on a tour where you can see our Irving apartments firsthand.
