Grilled Pork Bahn Mi at Lee’s Bakery


Sandwiches have rules. BLT’s should be on toasted white bread, but you wouldn’t put a Philly cheese steak on it. The classic Vietnamese sandwich, the bahn mi, must be on a freshly baked French roll. It’s neither hot nor cold, and never soggy.

Lee’s Bakery on Buford Highway produces Atlanta’s most authentic bahn mi. They bake dozens of French rolls daily, most of them used for their famous sandwiches.

Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, the rolls are filled with traditional ingredients like headcheese, cucumber, pickled carrot, homemade mayonnaise and cilantro, for only $3.25 to-go. I always order the grilled pork bahn mi with paper thin slices of fresh jalapeno, often eating it in my car, leaving bread crumbs everywhere. Totally worth it.
