I read about Lee’s Bakery on Buford Highway via Yelp, and because the majority of the reviews were great, I decided to give them a try. Man, let me just say “they ain’t nevah lied.” The reviews were right on! Best Banh mi ever!
Lee’s Bakery place has the best sandwich I ever devoured. If they weren’t so far away from my house I would be there now happily munching on a grilled pork bánh mì, instead of telling you about them. The night after I ate my first Lee’s Bakery bánh mì all I could think was *Homer Simpson voice*, “Yummm Banh miiiiiii!”
So what is a bánh mì? Basically it’s a Vietnamese Po’Boy, or as I would like to now call it, “The crack of all sandwiches.” A bánh mì is a baguette filled with meat or soy fillings, fresh cucumber slices, cilantro, and pickled carrots. Of all the bánh mì places on Buford Highway, Lee’s Bakery is the best. My personal favorite is the grilled pork bánh mì. Oh and did I mention they only charge $2.50 for one to go, and $3 for one ordered in? Yeah, let me not forget that. You can definitely get your grub on here for cheap.
On top of bánh mì, Lee’s Bakery also serves a mean bowl of pho and boba tea (or bubble tea). If you go be sure to try the mango boba tea. Between a bánh mì, bowl of pho, and a boba tea you might need to be waddled out the door. They will fill you up and leave you satisfied.
As far as the service, it’s excellent. The staff is very courteous and, as a person with self-diagnosed OCD, I appreciate that the staff always double bag my orders to make sure there will be no “accidents” in the car from transport.
If you live in or around the Atlanta metro area and haven’t tried this place, please drop what you are doing and go now. Your stomach and your mouth will thank me later.
Unfortunately Lee’s Bakery doesn’t have a website, but you can Google them and they are located at:4005 Buford Hwy NE
Atlanta, GA 30345 (404) 728-1008
Have you eaten Vietnamese food before, if so what’s your favorite dish?
