Why Madam Khanh banh mi is special ?
Nguyễn Thị Lộc, 79, makes the best bánh mì in Hoi An—and probably all of Vietnam. When translated to English, bánh mì means “bread,” but it’s also a general term for Vietnamese sandwiches. Lộc’s bánh mì attracts tourists to Hoi An, a beach city in central Vietnam that has placid riverside cafes, a lantern market, and a party scene that hints at too much Chinese money and influence.
Must try dish:
Bánh mì is a Vietnamese term for all kinds of bread. The word is derived from bánh and mì (wheat). Bread, or the baguette, was introduced by the French during its colonial period. Nowaday, Bánh mì is served with pate, mayonnaise, pickled vegetables, coriander, herbs, fresh chillies, some kinds of meat, egg,.. And most of breads are available in many stalls on roadsides in Hoian.

Tips for you
After reading all the reviews on Trip Advisor I had to visit Madam Khanh for myself. I took into account what the previous reviewers had said - just go with what you're given. The baguette was warm and crusty and filled with delicous fillings - unsure what they all were but it didn't matter as they tasted great. I went there about 3.30pm and there was a queue of about 8 people. I wasn't quite sure how the ordering system worked but Mrs Khanh had her eye on the ball as she steadily sat there and filled the baguettes - she knew exactly who came in when and served us accordingly. Definitley worth a visit and for VND20,000 per baguette you can't really go wrong.
As a lover of all kinds of sandwiches, especially ones with pork, I was determined to find the best Banh Mi in Vietnam during my recent visit. I tried a few in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Hoi An (including a certain place that is very hyped up from a TV show) and this was the standout for sure. Madam Khanh is the cutest lady ever, allowing us to pose with her for pictures and carefully making our sandwiches to perfection. The spice on her Banh Mi is perfect and the ingredients are top notch. We all got the "everything" which consisted of basically every kind of pork you can imagine. I think what makes her sandwich stand out above the rest, however, is the amazing pate - as you can really taste it throughout and it does not get lost among the variety of cuts on the sandwich. Also, it is ridiculously cheap! She could charge double the price and it would still be a steal. A definite must visit in Hoi An!
