Banh Mi Viet is cropping up on the block of 518 to 520 Divisadero St. in Hayes Valley, as evidenced by a recent DPH referral filed with the city of San Francisco. Owner Huynh Duong declined to comment, however, the heavy secrecy surrounding Banh Mi Viet implies that the project is in its very early stages and may not debut until 2022.

Classified as a “Limited Restaurant” with the city, it is surmised that Banh Mi Viet could be a counter-service-type shop, while the name alone suggests that they will specialize in Vietnamese baguettes called Bánh mì.

Bánh mì are sometimes eaten plain but are often split lengthwise and filled with various meats and veggies to be eaten as a sandwich. The most traditional version is filled with pork, cilantro, pickled daikon, and pickled carrots.

It’s possible that Banh Mi Viet may serve a variety of different Bánh mì sandwiches. The city also has records that state Banh Mi Viet pays a “Sugary Drinks Tax,” so whether they will serve Vietnamese Iced Coffee or something similar is still yet to be determined. The new business will share sidewalk space with highly rated beauty salon Citi Beauty Skin Care, who also declined to comment.
