Restaurant Spotlight: Banh Mi Boys Vietnamese Sandwich Shop

Monday, December 17th, 2012

What: Banh Mi Boys, a Vietnamese sandwich shop with glossy details and street smart style

Where: Toronto, Canada

Who: TED Design

If you're gonna get down on some banh mi, it might as well be in a hip spot. That's what the architects at TED Design delivered on their project, Banh Mi Boys sandwich shop in Toronto. To make the narrow space work, architect Peter Yip installed long benches along the wall and big picture windows out front to draw customers in off the street. Asian decor elements, such as Chinese lanterns, combine with urban touches like the wraparound grafitti mural to give the shop and "East meets West and old meets new vibe," Yip says.
