Bun Mee | 2015 Fillmore Street | San Francisco, CA
Bun Mee is a popular restaurant on Fillmore. On any given day, the place is packed. Bun Mee is how you would pronounce the word Bánh mì which literally translates to “bread” in the Vietnamese language.
I am really not a sandwich person but I like Bánh mì because they taste so good. Compare to other Bánh mì places, I would say that this is more of an Americanized Vietnamese place because they don’t serve traditional Bánh mì but as they described, Bánh mì-inspired sandwiches. And on Fillmore, that’s what I would expect.
After ordering, you can either grab a table in the front or sit at the counter and watch the chefs make the food. We opted for the counter because we like to catch the action. They are known for the Sloppy Buns which is like your sloppy joes but with the baguette bread. We also tried their fresh rolls and the Five Spice Chicken sandwich which we thought was good as well.
Here are some pictures from our first visit when they first opened a few months ago.
