Me Like Cafe Bunn Mi

I know what you’re thinking. Another Bahn Mi restaurant on Clement St.? Cafe Bunn Mi literally just opened and I have to admit, although it looks a bit non-authentic (and the name seems a bit Americanized), it really is. The outside looks more like a coffee shop than most Vietnamese restaurants in the area – and the clean interior boasts a screaming red wall and counter service. There are about five tables and nice big windows to gaze out onto the bustling sidewalk while slurping up the rice noodles out of your Pho.

The prices at Bunn Mi are totally broke-ass friendly. A friend and I ordered a Buddah tofu sandwich, for only $4, Imperial rolls with that awesome sauce for $5 and the lemongrass beef Pho for $7. Oh, I almost forgot – we also got some delicious Mojito Lemonade (non-alcoholic) for just $1 with any food order. Yum! Bunn Mi made me pretty happy. I would go back to try the other stuff on the menu – especially the fried duck sandwich, the five spice chicken and the avocado shake.

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
