Banh Mi Boys is a popular Vietnamese Asian fusion quick-serve restaurant with two locations. They have one on Yonge besides Ryerson and another on Queen West. I have been to both locations and they look exactly the same (which made me doubt if I ever went to the Queen West location for a second).

If you haven't been already, Banh Mi Boys sell cheap Vietnamese subs with a fusion twist. For example, they have Lemon Grass Tofu and Five Spice Pork Belly banh mis. They also sell tacos and steamed baos, which I have tried both and enjoyed. However, my absolute favourite are the Kimchi Fries! It's like poutine but perfect for any Kimchi lovers out there. It's the same size as a regular poutine from Smoke's Poutinerie, in case you were wondering.

Banh Mi Boys is the perfect place to grab a snack when hungry, especially if you are a broke Ryerson (or any university) student. It's laid-back and a good place to relax with a friend for lunch or for grabbing take-out.

  1. i love this place!!
    the squid taco is super awesome .

  2. You should make a review of 10-ish Asian restaurants in Toronto & compare and contrast which are the best - I would definitely read that (like this one for instance, with locally sourced menus Best Restaurants with Locally Sourced Menus). I suppose Banh Mi Boys would be on the top ranks - amazing fried chicken (however I prefer the one on Queen W, since it is a frequented place, they have high turnaround and I trust them more with freshly prepared meals). I truly love Asian cuisine, the tastes are so different to Canadian comfort food, obviously.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Laurie!

      Thank you for your input! I will definitely keep this in mind. I try to review all the places I go to now so it might be awhile til I rack up enough Asian restaurants to review (since I started doing non-cafe reviews recently). Hopefully I will be able to make a post in the near future!

      Thanks for stopping by!
