Update 03/11/2022

We found the place where the pictures from the comment section were taken. The surrounding locals told us that she either moved to a different place or quit the business altogether.

Best banh mi EVER!!! ❤️

Super tasty!! Super cheap!! I bought 10 in one day between 2 people 😂 I think I had 7! I was going on a 10 hour bus journey in my defence and we had two each for breakfast before we left 😋 they were so, so cheap I think my tip was more than the actual total of ten because I felt guilty for eating all her mock meats 😂 ( just ask for no cheese, it’s a cheese triangle spread she put on the bread ) ENJOY THIS THING OF BEAUTY 🤤

Pros: Super cheap , Incredibly tasty , Friendly service

Cons: Not always there when you want one 🙂, Not fully vegan

Quick and tasty

The food is good, cheap, and vegan. Vegetarians can add cheese for a price. Mainly fake meat, cucumber, and carrot, with a tasty sauce. The woman who runs the place is smiley and friendly and speaks a little English. She does run it by herself and is mostly around in the morning and early afternoon. If you arrive and see a blue tarp around her stall, come back another day. If you arrive and she is not around, come back in about half an hour.

Pros: Vegan, cheap, quick, friendly

Cons: Not the healthiest vegan food 😀

🥖 Flavorful 🤤

She's just lovely and leaves you such an optimistic outlook on humanity. The bun is a bit stale, but the fillings are memorable: a bit crunchy and very savory.

Pros: Tasty vegan option, Loveliest seller, Very cheap

Love this lady! Love this food!

We searched for this lady after a long and hot ride. We weren’t sure how clean it would be as it’s on the street, however I was sooo impressed with the ladies cleanliness, the food and the lady herself!

She was very careful to anti-bac before preparing food, her surfaces were super clean and the food looked really fresh. It tasted amazing!!

She was also very happy to let us film anything and have her picture taken with me. A great lady serving great food. I definitely recommend!!

Pros: Clear vegan menu, Super lady , Super clean food

Delicious and so cheap!

We always love a vegan bahn mi, so when we discovered this bahn mi cart (vegetarian not fully vegan because you can add cheese if you desire) we were well excited! We loved the different mock meats she puts in the baguette, but love it even more than she makes them all herself. She's situated outside of a temple, and on one of the days we visited her, there was a temple full of school children praying - so lovely vibes! The bahn mis themselves were delicious and for the price (only 30,000 VND each - WHAT?!) you pay, you're really getting good value. We visited her twice, and on the second trip we bought two bahn mis each (because, why not?) If you're in Nha Trang, pick one (or two) up, walk over to the beach and enjoy your sandwich with the beautiful view of the ocean.

Pros: Delicious and cheap!

Cons: None

Tasty and cheap vegan Banh Mi!

Although we didn’t eat a lot of them, this was definitely our favourite banh mi in Vietnam (3 weeks). The lady is very sweet and it is also very affordable (13k without cheese).

Pros: Very affordable, Good service

Lovely lady - nice banh mi

Thanks to HappyCow we found this lovely lady in Nha Trang with her delicious Vietnamese baguettes (banh mi). When we found her, she was in front of Mellissa restaurant at 73 Hung Vuong. I added a photo of the restaurant so you can locate her cart.
The banh mi was very good. All options have their prices listed and written in Vietnamese and Russian.

Pros: Cheap
