Banh Mi Bonanza
Melbourne CBD takeaway joint Banh Mi Stand is giving away 200 free banh mis for one day only.
February 12, 2024
We all love a free feed. Melbourne's city workers are lucky enough to have the chance to get a mighty good one on Wednesday, February 28, when Banh Mi Stand is givinh away hundreds of free banh mis.
These aren't just your usual banh mis. The crew here has teamed up with Vietnam Airlines to create a series of sangas inspired by destinations that the airline flies to from Melbourne.
This includes a London banh mi that comes with Sunday roast fillings; a French-inspired number that's packed with duck confit and orange plum sauce; an Indian roll that includes turmeric cauliflower and kasundi; and a German banh mi that's loaded with pork sausage, salted cabbage and chilli.
The team's classic Vietnamese banh mi is also up for grabs on the day, filled with Hanoi cha com, a pork and rice mix, and Hai Phong pâté.
The banh mis have been created especially for the banh mi giveaway, and will only be available on the day. If one particular version sounds like your dream lunchtime treat, be sure to get down early. The team will start the giveaway from 10am and will be slinging the goods until they run out.
But Banh Mi Stand isn't ending it there. The first 200 punters will get a free banh mi and also a free Vietnamese iced coffee. The Melbourne banh mi shop will have both your lunch and caffeine fix sorted for the day, without you needing your wallet.
