Banh Mi Factory – Opening Soon
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of sinking one’s teeth into the flaky crust of a bang-on banh mi, and few joints do the delicacy justice as well as Banh Mi Factory. The market-born Vietnamese street-food concept went legit in December 2019, snagging tastebuds of northside locals with its first bricks-and-mortar dispensary in Zillmere. The site’s proximity to Geebung’s industrial centres and its grab-and-go convenience made the hub a popular lunch option during COVID, so much so that it wasn’t long before the team was approached with an expansion opportunity in Newstead. Banh Mi Factory currently has a hole-in-the-wall location in the works on Austin Street, which is targeting a mid-June opening. Employing a quick-service model, Banh Mi Factory will be offering a streamlined menu of banh mi (filled with crispy roast pork, chargrilled chicken or beef, or tofu) noodle salads, rice-paper rolls and spring rolls. Keep an eye out for this one when it opens next month.
