BÁNH MÌ DELI is an Asian baguette shop in Amsterdam at Prinsengracht 172 near the Anne Frank museum and the iconic church: De westerkerk.
We produce handmade artisanal Asian baguettes at our bakery and top them with Asian herbs such as coriander, Thai basil, mint and pickled carrot/daikon. We put our focus on the Healthy Food trend, taking into account a range of choices for vegans & vegetarians. We keep our offer up to date with all the classics such as Bánh mì Đặc biệt and trends that are offered alternately.
~ We love France ~
Our deli is a family business working alongside a passionate Asian team. Having operated 2 Vietnamese restaurants for many years in the past, we have had a great deal of experience in the hospitality industry.
Why we love France?
Baguettes were introduced by the French during the colonial period in Vietnam.
We take the French influence very seriously by going extra miles to keep the French traditional cooking technique along with its flavor, which is combined gracefully with the Asian taste of baguette. Some of the techniques we use are sous-vide, saupoudrer and brassiere, resulting in our fine sliced meat, which is then glazed with a special Asian sauce made from homemade broth. The French also influences our choice to include butter, (chili) mayonnaise and unique pâté chaud in the baguette. Ultimately, our goal is to deliver you the authentic and balanced flavor of the Asian-French baguette through our use of high quality techniques and fresh ingredients.
Come by and experience all the variations of BÁNH MÌ DELI'S baguettes!

Our artisinal Bánh mì
BÁNH MÌ DELI has worked for over 2 years on it's secret baguettes recipe. The Vietnamese version is fluffier and has a thinner crust than the original French one. In Europe we don't have the same humidity, temperature and bleached flower as in Vietnam. Our journey consist of tasting lots of French flours and experimenting with different kind of ingredients and ovens. Our bakery makes use of an antique stone-oven for producing our bread (video available soon) and therefor we're ~proud~ to say BÁNH MÌ DELI'S baguettes are the same as in Vietnam!
In order to keep the quality spot on, we also run each roll a second time through a high speed toaster before serving our customers. This ensures you the crisp and texture what's needed for the best Bánh mì experience.
1: We make our bread according to traditional methods, the Dutch temperature outside the proofer and oven can have effect on the outside look of the artisinal Baguette. ~This will never affect our bread in terms of taste and quality~
2: Our bakery produces a certain amount of baguettes daily, although we're upscaling and try to fulfill every customers need, we're quite often sold out. Be as early as possible to enjoy this real master piece-
All our Bánh Mì's are topped with base ingredients:
Spread of butter and Páté chaud, pickled carrot & daikon, coriander, chili-mayonaisse, red chili peppers and a splash of Maggi (soy-sauce)
