Catfish Banhmi from Banhmi11 (Vietnamese Fish Finger Sandwich Craving) | Berwick Street Market, Soho London

6 Oct

Friday is Fish and Chips day. Right? It’s a well known FACT!

I didn’t want stodgy fish and chips for my lunch on Friday but I did want a fish finger sandwich, and I knew where from. Marks and Spencer. Sounds odd right? But M&S’s Café on Long Acre does serve some decent food, and I knew they did fish finger sandwiches. So how disappointed was I when I turned up to join a long queue and then didn’t see said sandwich anywhere on their menu? And Marks and Spencer why the hell don’t you have the café menu’s published on your websites? FAIL!

I was lost. I wanted a fish finger sandwich and nothing else would do! I knew Leon did one but I wanted to see if there was anything else out there before I took a walk to Old Compton Street. So lost I started Googling “fish and chip sandwich london” with the hope that someone would have posted a nice review on where I could find one. That’s when I stumbled across Food Network’s London’s 10 Best Sandwiches. Catfish Banhmi from Banhmi11. The answer was right in front of me. The little Vietnamese stall pitched up on Berwick Street that I had been meaning to go to for months – there is no better time.

I went along and didn’t even have to queue. Ordered my sandwich and opted for “spicy” when asked how hot I wanted it. I also had some dried shallots on it. £6 was kind of steep for a sandwich but it’s Friday so what the hell. Fish and Chips in London would have cost me a score.

That sandwich kept me filled up til dinner time with no snacking so it was well worth it. I was told by a fellow customer that next time I should try the beef pho… Hmm I think I’ll leave that to the CayTre experts.
