Banh Mi Saigon is the one non-dumpling vending restaurant I write about, as the name suggests they make Banh Mi sandwiches, and they are amazing. Until a fire wiped out the strip mall that housed them, they were the best Vietnamese restaurant in the Pioneer Valley and one of the overall best restaurants in the Valley. But the guys at Banh Mi Saigon just put the word out via their Facebook page that they are officially coming back. They will be opening in Northampton, MA in the old Pho Saigon spot on Main Street.
The word is that Mi Tierra, another great place that was lost in the fire, will also be coming back, moving into the Shiki Asian Fusion spot in Hadley. Hopefully we will be hearing that the other businesses lost in the fire are on their way back too.
This is great news! We see the Mi Tierra truck outside Shiki, so they’re doing something toward getting ready! I’d be happier about the Banh Mi guys (whom I miss a lot) if they weren’t going to be on Main Street in Northampton where it’s impossible to find a place to park! But we mustn’t look gift horses in the mouth, must we.
And your post reminds me — it’s time to get over to Oriental Flavor again!
